Subject Re: Getting started with subversion
Date Wed, 14 Jul 2010 20:51:41 GMT
Thanks Bob. I looked at the free book, but it looks word-for-word the same,
Getting New Data into Your Repository is exactly the same. Can you point me
to the right place?

I thought perhaps the information under Initial Check Out would set up an
initial file structure.

I tried:
Macintosh:GraphicArt TommyHome$  svn checkout
https://ksfgraphics.goolecode.com/svn/trunk/ kwfgraphics --username
whidbeytomas

---and got this:
svn: OPTIONS of 'https://ksfgraphics.goolecode.com/svn/trunk': Could not
resolve hostname `ksfgraphics.goolecode.com': Host not found (
https://ksfgraphics.goolecode.com)

I tried this again appending "--password *mypassword" *to the end, that got
me 'path not found'

I tried:
Macintosh:GraphicArt TommyHome$ *svnadmin create /var/svn/newrepos*
*
*
---and got:
svnadmin: Repository creation failed
svnadmin: Could not create top-level directory
svnadmin: Can't create directory '/var/svn/newrepos': No such file or
directory

Surely someone has been here before?! You can't all start with a repository?
Can someone tell me which section of the free manual addresses my situation?
or give me explicit instructions? If I can get this down, I will be training
a host of interns to use this system. They are waiting for me.
