Hi everyone,

I just upgraded from 1.4 to 1.5 and have trouble viewing the Log
Messages. When I try i get prompted for Go offline, when then I select
'don't go offline', it asks again, select again and then gives the
following error:

File not found: revision 89, path '/o'

This happens with any log i try to view. If I select 'go offline' I get
a blank log. I know logs are being written as another team member can
view the logs via 1.4.

Any ideas how to fix this?

David

When TSVN prompts for going off-line,
this means that the there is either no
connection to the repository or some
other error occurred.

As for asking *twice*, I should find
some time next week to look into this.

> File not found: revision 89, path '/o'

This looks like a broken repository.
Please try showing the log with the
command line client to see whether your
repo is o.k.

If it is, try turning off the log cache
via TSVN settings.

An empty log is what happens when TSVN
had not yet the chance to cache any
relevant log info for the respective path.

Please let me know whether (and if, how)
you could fix the issue.

Hi Stefan,

Im a bit of a newb when i comes to subversion, so thanks for helping me out. Don't know to much about administrating subversion, but figured the following command would display the log for me:

svnadmin list-dblogs /myrepo/location/

I get the following from that:

svn: Expected version '3' of repository; found version '5'

Could this be the problem?

Didn't get an answer from anyone regarding my problem. I was running 1.4 and now on 1.5 and cannot view logs in SVN. Trying to find out why. Someone on 1.4 doesn't have any problem viewing the logs I have entered.

If you're using file:/// access, you must first upgrade your
repository manually as mentioned in the release notes.
Also, you could get into such problems if your file:// path to the
repository is pointing to an UNC share: mount the share to a drive
letter instead.

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for the help so far. Just checked, and our repositry is a file:/// so I suppose I will need to do these manual upgrades. Will this affect users on 1.4 still? Also, in reference to your share statement. The repos are being accessed on a network drive (ie: /computer/folder/) Is that going to be a problem? I have about 8 or so repos to sort out.

It most certainly will be a problem. Do yourself a favour and set up a
server. svnserve is really easy to get going. We already have 3
reasons for not using file:/// access for multiple users and you just
supplied a 4th reason ;-)

Hi Simon,

Well the network drive is on a server. I just ran 'svnserve --version' and get the following:

svnserve, version 1.1.4 (r13838)
   compiled Aug 21 2005, 20:56:55

Copyright (C) 2000-2004 CollabNet.
Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.tigris.org/
This product includes software developed by CollabNet (http://www.Collab.Net/).

So the question, does that mean i'm using svnserve? Sorry for all the stupid questions, I wasn't the one who set up subversion, but am now the one who administrates it. (needs hands holding)

Perhaps im using things in a completly backwards fashion.


Thanks for the help so far.

David

Ps: sorry bout the sig. (again)

No, you're still using file:///

If you would be using svnserve, your urls would start with svn://
instead of file://

Please have a look at our docs on how to set up a server:
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-serversetup.html

If you're server is running Windows, the easiest way to get a Subversion
server up and running might be the visualsvn server:
http://www.visualsvn.com/server/

That only tells you that svnserve is installed on the computer, not
that it is serving your repositories. I take it you ran that command
on teh server, not on your local PC.

Also 1.1.4 is very old now (nearly 3 years old). You really need to
get a newer version.

Call me thick, but is it possible to run svnserve on a linux (centos4) box and work on the repos from windows XP boxes? I take it the svnserver and subversion must be installed on linux box and tortoise must be on the win boxes?

The client/server protocols are designed (much like most other
internet-enabled protocols) such that the client and server OSes
don't matter at all. As long as they both speak the same protocol, it
works fine.

Correct you run svnserve on the linux box and all XP clients talk to
the server rather than accessing the repositories directly. You want
to prevent your clients accessing the repositories directly so you
should make sure that the directory holding the repositories is *not*
a network share, or you block access using linux permissions.

Once you have svnserve running and the file:// access is blocked then
everyone needs to use TSVN->relocate on their working copies to use
the new URLs. Assuming you setup svnserve such that its svnparentpath
is the directory containing all your repositories, your URLs will
change from something like
file://server/svnshare/repos1/path to svn://server/repos1/path

I suggest that you retain shared access while you test that svnserve
is working, to avoid getting pelted with rotten tomatoes by your
co-workers :-) From any XP client use the repobrowser to look at your
svn:// URL. If you can see the repository content then all should be
well.
