For a long time we put SVN repositories on a Windows share (worked great as only one person was working on one project).
Now, we are moving dev machines away from Windows to Ubuntu and we need to access those repositories from Ubuntu.
I mounted the svn repositories share like this:
//win_serv/svn /mnt/svn cifs credentials=/home/u/.smbcreds,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
I managed to change repository URL to
/mnt/svn/some_project. However, trying to do
svn up causes an error:
svn: E200033: Another process is blocking the working copy database, or the underlying filesystem does not support file locking; if the working copy is on a network filesystem, make sure file locking has been enabled on the file server svn: E200033: sqlite[S5]: database is locked svn: E200033: Additional errors: svn: E200033: sqlite[S5]: database is locked
Am I doing something wrong (besides the 'svn repository on windows share' fact)?
Is it even possible to access an svn repo on a Windows share from Linux?
