Trying to execute the command
svn log svn://[my server address]/path/to/repository
nets me the following:
svn: E170001: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'svn://[my server address]/path/to/repository' svn: E170001: Could not create SASL context: generic failure
Some quick googling reveals a possible solution:
sudo port activate cyrus-sasl2 @2.1.23_3+kerberos
However, before I attempt this, I would like to know a couple things.
- What exactly is going on?
- What does this command do? How does it fix the problem?
EDIT: I am not using SASL, nor do I wish to. I don't actually have Cyrus SASL installed.
