About subversion

#1 Post by michele » Thu May 17, 2007 9:45 am

Hi to all,i'm very novice user and i need help!

I install esvn.
When i launch esvn from command line an 'error' appears as follow:

michele@dream:~$ esvn
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 169
Major opcode: 145
Minor opcode: 3
Resource id: 0x0
Failed to open device
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 169
Major opcode: 145
Minor opcode: 3
Resource id: 0x0
Failed to open device

But esvn starts!so i think it is not fatal error! According to subversion instructions,i check out as follow (because is the first time) :
https://www.myroms.org/svn/src
Esvn works: i found all roms path in my computer!But when i browse in esvn (looking in the roms paths in repository browser) appears something of strange and the message above goes on as follow:

michele@dream:~$ esvn
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 169
Major opcode: 145
Minor opcode: 3
Resource id: 0x0
Failed to open device

.svn/entries:1:1:error occurred while parsing element
.svn/entries:1:1:error occurred while parsing element
.svn/entries:1:1:error occurred while parsing element

and so on,while i continue to browse in esvn.
I repeat: all the roms paths are in my directory and seem be ok!
No errors appear in repository browser.
But what's the meaning of the message above?

Michele,

I hadn't heard of esvn, so I checked out the web site and it looked like development on this stopped about a year ago.

We've had good luck with SmartSVN, a cross-platform Java GUI SVN client. The Foundation version is free, trivial to install, robust and relatively easy to use. You can see the features listed here:
http://www.syntevo.com/smartsvn/features.jsp

Perhaps others have other favorite multiplatform SVN GUI clients they would like to mention...

Thanks!
You are right!Smartsvn looks better!
I proceed ,to update roms,as follow : the root path is /home/michele/Desktop/roms/trunk , so i click on the icon 'update local working copy from repository' and i chose Update to HEAD. A window appears where:
in repository : https://www.myroms.org/svn/src
username: michele
password: my password

Finally in the output : Update to Head:.at revision 65

ok?
Thanks for reply Rich!
