Subversion client


Hi,

I have just started a new contract. I am programming in Pascal on an OpenVMS box. Now for those of you still reading...the source code is stored on a subversion server. All the other chaps use tortoise SVN on their windows boxes to update/commit.

On my linux box at home I can connect to the VPN with vpnc and I can use putty to access the test box but I am having difficulty setting up a sandbox.

Can anyone suggest a linux subversion client pls? I was recommended Rabbit CVS but I found the doco did not really help (which might give an indication of the level I am sitting at pretty much beginner). I am happy to use the command line but I need to know what the commands actually mean. All I really need to do is: checkout create a sandbox on my PC, update grab other people's changes, commit my changes and see what I have outstanding.

Any suggestions gratefully received. I am using Fedora 22 on my desktop

Cheers

So far as I know, the command is simply svn. You don't have to go through the gyrations that the other blokes do, with their "putty" versions of this-or-that. You simply use the real thing.

There are also good GUI clients for SVN, if you prefer to go that way. (Which means that you can do both.) I happen to use the "Eclipse" editor which, although it's written in Java and is relatively slow, does have tightly-integrated support (by means of "plugins") for version control, issue tracking, syntax checking and many other things.

"CVS" is a different version control system. I don't know if it has support for SVN. Likewise, "git" is yet-another system for version control.

Ahh, yes. Pascal on VMS. I remember it well. Need some help?

Thanks. Easy to install subversion and then svn is available. Still having a few problems but I am talking to the bloke who set up subversion in the first place. I'll get my ideas straight with him.

But, basically, I can point a share on my windows box to \\10.2.243.101\nfs\tim and all is good. using the same on linux ain't recognised:

If I don't get anywhere with this guy I'll post some errors. I am not showing the real IP address which means a lot of editing

EDIT to give an idea of the problems I get:

Quote:
[tim@lizard ~]$ svn checkout \\10.2.243.101:\nfs\tim abc
svn: E125002: '\10.2.243.101:nfstim' does not appear to be a URL
Quote:
[tim@lizard ~]$ svn checkout http://10.2.243.101:\nfs\tim abc
svn: E235000: In file 'subversion/libsvn_client/checkout.c' line 88: assertion failed (svn_uri_is_canonical(url, pool))
Aborted (core dumped)
If I can get the URL sorted I might be in business

Yup, all done. I just had to get the right URL and I am in business. Nice to be able to use linux for all facets of this dev.
