I am using TortoiseSVN for the first time and got immediately into
trouble. My setup:


1. Win7 64-bit

2. VirtualBox with Win7 as host

3. VM is VirtualBox Guest is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (up to date).

4. SVN Server is networked and a different m/c.

5. SVN Working copy is on by VM - command line SVN works fine,
builds fine.

6. I wanted to use the Tortoise GUI frontend to SVN so

a. I installed it

b. Used file manager (windows explorer) to move to the Samba share
where we have working directory

c. Created a new directory (tortoisetest)

d. Right clicked and did a checkout

e. Got the below.


Any help is appreciated.
