WG: [Subclipse-users] Server 1.6 checkout problem

From: Wolfgang Pinitsch <wolfgang.pinitsch_at_hyperwave.com>

@mark thx for the hint with the other list!

 

FYI here to this users_at_subversion.apache.org list ... i used the
Eclipse standard svn checkout UI (new svn project wizard) to select the
branch, so i would assume the URL is not the real problem ;-)

 

Server: Subversion 1.6.11 (r934486)

 

Here are some strange logentries from the apache error.log:

 

[Wed Jul 31 09:39:51 2013] [error] [client x.x.x.x] Could not fetch
resource information. [301, #0] [Wed Jul 31 09:39:51 2013] [error]
[client x.x.x.x] (17)File exists: Requests for a collection must have a
trailing slash on the URI. [301, #0] [Wed Jul 31 09:52:38 2013] [error]
[client x.x.x.x] request failed: error reading the headers [Wed Jul 31
09:52:49 2013] [error] [client x.x.x.x] Invalid URI in request
\xff\xfb\x1f\xff\xfb
\xff\xfb\x18\xff\xfb'\xff\xfd\x01\xff\xfb\x03\xff\xfd\x03 GET / HTTP/1.0

 

... any suggestions?

 

Regards,

Wolfgang

        We are still running an older svn server (1.6) and i was trying
to do a simple fresh checkout of my branch. All i get is this message:

         

        Console output:

         

        checkout http://svn/xxx/test -r HEAD --depth=infinity --force

            APR does not understand this error code

        svn: Unable to connect to a repository at URL
'http://svn/xxx/test'

        svn: Error running context: The server sent an improper HTTP
response

         

 

I would first triple check that you are entering the right URL. Other
than that, I would guess this is a bug in Subversion 1.8. It uses a new
library for HTTP communication and there have been a lot of bugs
surfacing due to less common configurations such as proxy servers that
advertise support for HTTP/1.1 but then do not fully support it. The
old library apparently new how to deal with those issues better. Many
of the known bugs were fixed in SVN 1.8.1, but I have not seen this on
the mailing list.

 

I can say that it is not a general problem with an older server.
Subclipse is hosted on a SVN 1.6 server and we are able to checkout and
use it OK.

 

It would be great to have you gather more information that could be
reported on users_at_subversion.apache.org so that they could fix the
problem. Failing that, I would say to just uinstall this Subclipse
version and install the latest Subclipse 1.8.x version instead of 1.10.x
and you should be all set.
