I am a Linux user and I am using the intrepid ibix version.I am a new
user and reading the book I have created a repository apparently
without problem. I now want to import my files into the repository. I
type in the command hit transmit and suddenly I am faced by a window
telling me that my input has been ignored. Even worse the terminal has
been closed down and everything I typed in has been thrown away. Once
again I type it all in again trying hard not to make any mistakes and
once again I get the window telling me my input has been ignored. Once
again the terminal session closes down. After repeating this process
four or five times my mind is filled with benign feelings for whoever
it was who decided that putting an error message of no apparent value
in a window of no apparent use is a acceptable solution . What was
wrong with shell commands placing their error messages in the usual
place and and allowing the user to make a quick correction and issue
the command again? As for the message I would have thought that it is
hardly likely to get the user on your side by telling them that their
input is rubbish and you cannot be bothered to spare the time to tell
them why. I have had to give up on Subversion.. Either I am typing in
rubbish or there is something wrong with the repository which seems to
be left in some unuseble state.but there is no way of knowing because
subversion ignores my input.
