The simplest way to tell is to run the following command:
$> svn --version
(you may have to give the full path - /Volumes/Build/subversion/bin/svn)
If it prints out valid info, then the installation is good.
On my linux machine, the above command prints:
[~] > svn --version
svn, version 1.4.3 (r23084)

Copyright (C) 2000-2006 CollabNet.
Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.tigris.org/
This product includes software developed by CollabNet (
The following repository access (RA) modules are available:
* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV) protocol.
- handles 'http' scheme
- handles 'https' scheme
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
- handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
- handles 'file' scheme
As you said, your svn installation is good because you were able to
successfully checkout. But the problem is when you execute the 'svn update'
command. As per your email, it seems like you are constructing the command
that needs to be executed to do the svn update. I was suggesting that may be
the command that is formed is wrong or the directory mentioned in the
command is non-existent or something like that.
Are you able to run svn from command line successfully?
For this svn update, can you try the following command from command line:
$> /Volumes/Build/subversion/bin/svn update
--non-interactive --quiet --username jyork --password ****** -r 20
What happens when you run this command?
PS: Can you please "reply-all" when posting to the list? That way many
others in the list can help answer the question. In addition, I happen to
look at the list very irregularly.
