Hi,

I have working SVN server with several repositories running on my XP desktop.
I have several VMs (VMware server) running on my windows XP desktop.

I can checkout any SVN repository within any of my Windows based VMs; so far all good.
Now I recently created my first Linux based VM (Ubuntu).

Doing a checkout on the Ubuntu VM as per below command just times out.

svn checkout --username xxx --password xxx file::///windowsdesktop-IP/LocalRepos

The above nicely works from any Windows based VM using tortoisesvn
I installed rapidsvn and tried the GUI way to checkout, but same timeout.
Via Places I can browse in Ubuntu VM to that shared folder LocalRepos on my Windows XP desktop.

Any ideas? I am new to Linux.

Cheers,
Pat

Hi Guys,

Apologies are in order.
svnserve had default repo folder /LocalRepos so I was pointing to the wrong folder
A bit of a mistery why it did work on the windows VMs with Tortoise

Thanks for the help anyhow

Cheers,
Pat
