Re: Newbie Question for Subversion on OS X Tiger

Hi Unnsse,

You're specifying the repository URL incorrectly. You need to specify
it file:///Developer/src-repos/sesame/

Think of it like this: file:// is like http:// but then you have to
specify the path to the repository and that's /Developer/src-repos/
sesame/ and hence you need three slashes.

Secondly, unless you created a "trunk" directory in the repository,
this will not exist. By default, the repository is completely empty
and does not have anything--no folders or files--in it. So you'd need
to import the standard directory structure (branches/, tags/, and
trunk/) if you want it.

Hope this helps!
Robert
