Re: Help with "Chunk delimiter was invalid" problem

  this has been happening to me since day one - w/ Solaris 8, svn 1.2.0 (and with 1.4.3) and apache. I was told to upgrade apache (or encouraged by the users list) - since i was only running 2.0.52. I am now running Solaris 8, Svn 1.4.3 and apache 2.0.59. The error did go away most of the time. However i think it did still happen once - but its much better.
  what version of apache are you using? - you may want to try it - since its easy enough.
  PS - sometimes i still wonder if its server related - because we have another server which is faster and newer - didn't happen as much there. Sorry i can't help more.

  I hope someone has a clue as to what’s going on here…
  When attempting to checkout or update, I’m constantly getting this message on just one Win XP client machine:
  svn: REPORT request failed on '/Eng/Devel/!svn/vcc/default'
  svn: REPORT of '/Eng/Devel/!svn/vcc/default': Chunk delimiter was invalid (http://svn)
  We have 6 developers, two local and 4 remote, and most of them have both Win XP and Mac dev machines. This problem is happening on exactly one of the remote XP boxes. The Mac on the same remote network checks out and updates just fine.
  On the problematic box, I’ve tried checking out with both the Cygwin command line and with TortoiseSVN. Both give this error after getting some short way through whatever operation they are requesting. I’ve tried doing fresh checkouts with each (no existing work tree) and they both hit this problem after checking out just a few files.
  The server in question is NOT a Mac…it’s a Red Hat ES4 box running SVN 1.3.2 via Apache HTTP. Remote access is via our VPN…we’re not serving SVN via HTTPS.
  I don’t even know what might have changed to cause this to start happening. I might have updated my Cygwin and therefore my svn client. I just pulled the most recent TortoiseSVN down just to try a second client. We’ve been running this same server for many months with no issues.
  Any ideas?
