RE: Re: SVN commits fail- Can't get exclusive lock

Hi,

I eventually solved the locking problem!
The problem was with the NFS, and it affected the work with SVN, since
the repository is not local, but on a mount.
It was solved only after I rebooted the NFS server (and not just the
client, as I did before)

So simple, so annoying :)

Anyway, If someone will have this problem in the future,
I find another suggestion on this website:
http://woss.name/2005/08/25/subversion-and-nfs-file-locking/
"...changed the NFS mount option from default to
"hard,intr,bg,nolock,rw" and remount the nfs directory to my local mount
point."

Thanks,
Hila

I think c mike pilato already hinted you when redirecting you back to
users@ about this being an nfs problem where you need to run lockd for
an FSFS repository to work correctly. So, looking into running lockd and
using a server implementation which supports locks would be an idea...

HTH,

Erik.
