Subject: First experiences: svn: This client is too old

Hi group,

I'm just checking out Subversion for the first time. I bought the book and
I'm working through it now, this looks really cool.

 

But.

 

The book sort of sets a person to installing Subversion and then
TurtoiseSVN. Following this path will end the fun very quickly. Turtoise
operations from the shell will be fine but with the more advanced stuff like
moving, deleting files you will get stuck with the message that the client
is too old.

 

U:\svn\doc>svn move CHANGELOG.txt CHANGELOG

svn: This client is too old to work with working copy '.'; please get a
newer Subversion client

 

So it seems that there is a rather stringent relationship between the svn
client and the server.

 

This doesn't need to be a problem as long there is some information on which
versions of TurtoiseSVN and Subversion work together. I think this
information is not there, at least I couldn't find it.

 

Personally I think that this can be avoided.

Cheers,

Onno

 

 

 

Which versions of TortoiseSVN and Subversion are you using? I followed your
same path when I started with SVN and everything went swimmingly for me.
Perhaps if you have started with the new 1.4.0 release, there is an issue
until Tortoise catches up?
