SVN server problem: Can't find anything on this.

#1 Post by hellyj » Thu Dec 14, 2017 10:03 pm

svn checkout --username hellyj https://www.myroms.org/svn/src/trunk ROMS
svn: E170000: Unrecognized URL scheme for 'https://www.myroms.org/svn/src/trunk'

Any suggestions?

I should have said this is on OSX and it turns out that Apple ships an old, incompatible subversion. Of course, why didn't I think of that. I'm updating in case others have the same problem.

Thanks for the update!

Hernan hates my suggestion of switching to git. :twisted:

The good new is that (as you know, Kate) all the users can ignore Hernan's choice of repository format and use git svn to clone their own copy.

Honestly, I've had mixed to bad luck with "git svn" on Linux. I gave up and do that through the Mac.

I've been using Git and Git-SVN on Cygwin, but have now switched to Linux, with good results so far. I'll keep an eye out for problems. I should have though Git was very platform-agnostic.

Git alone is fine, it's the git-svn stuff that's fragile. It's based on some Perl scripts which may or may not be part of your svn install. For me on Linux, it was working OK for the download, then would randomly fail on upload. When we got a new supercomputer, it didn't have the Perl scripts and the supercomputer staff is now less able to keep up with the software stack after budget tightening.

OK, so an all-Git ROMS would be better for people like us. And for everyone after the transition period.
