Re: Re[2]: Windows / Linux version

Good day,

Sorry, I forgot to mention that they're both using the ".svn" mode.

I have now tried using 1.4.3 for my windows ( so that both my windows and
linux use 1.4.3 ), updated my source, then switch the linux. After doing so,
I am now able to update my sources with no problems...not sure though if
that is the correct solution, because I am still encountering "Skipped '.'"
in some of my sources.

Steps to reproduce.
1. Boot to linux
2. use "svn update" on a source
* you will get an error message stating that you do not have permissions to
do so
3. use "sudo svn update" on that same source [ and enter your password ]

Expected Result:
* The source will be updated.

Actual Result:
* Skipped '.'

Note that if you remove step#2, there would be problem whatsoever. But if a
permission fails on a source, it seems that I can no longer access it via

Any ideas?
