Subversion : /usr/local/bin/svnserve.bin


FreeBSD 6.0

I installed subversion from ports with -DWITH_SVNSERVE_WRAPPER option and a few others. I was following along with this little tutorial.

I am ideally wanting to run this in tunneling mode, however if I try to start the service like svnserve -d or svnserve -t from shell I get an error:

/usr/local/bin/svnserve.bin:Cannot fork : Resource temporaily unavailable

, in both modes that error appears.
The file /usr/local/bin/svnserve.bin was a copy I made of /usr/local/bin/svnserve, I created that because when I tried to start it before without that copy it could not find svnserve, the last part of that tutorial says I would have had to copy svnserve.bin to svnserve. So I am a little confused.

I was wondering if anyone could offer some help with this?

Many thanks.

[edit] Fixed, my fault (of course) - make sure if you change makefiles you do it right ;s

svnserver.bin is a binary file and should have been installed when you installed the svn port, svnserve is just a simple shell script that sets the umask and then calls the binary, if you have copied svnserve to svnserve.bin you'll need to reinstall the port.

To use svn over ssh you don't need to run the svnserve server. From your client set the url as svn+ssh://host/path/to/rep
oops, didn't see that you had already fixed it
