I've been using subversion on my Windows 7 PC with Cygwin with a repository on a Linux server accessed via file://.
% svn status -u
% svn ls file:////server/path/repository
% ls //server/path/repository
The new svn version is 1.8.13 (r1667537) on i686-pc-cygwin. The previous svn version I was using is 1.6.17.
With file:// I get the E170000 error. With file:///<file:///\\> or file:////<file:///\\> I get the E180001 error.
The repository directory is technically on another computer but is seen as local on my PC (I guess it's NFS or SAMBA) when accessed with the // prefix from the shell.
If I copy the repository folder to my local /tmp, I can access it correctly via svn. But that's obviously not my goal.
If I access the repository via the URL svn+ssh://somelinuxcomputer/nfspath/repository, that works. But my experience with the SSH tunnel is that it tends to slow down access.
Has anyone experienced this problem before? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
