Svn-1.3.1 errors on intel mac on checkout

I just installed svn-1.3.1 from .dmg on an intel mac. I am getting …

subversion/libsvn_wc/log.c:338: (apr_err=155009)
svn: In directory ‘sr’
subversion/libsvn_subr/io.c:565: (apr_err=2)
svn: Can’t copy ‘sr/.svn/tmp/text-base/README.svn-base’ to
‘sr/README.tmp’: No such file or directory

Any one getting this? TIA for any help.

I compiled it with DarwinPorts and had not problems.

That was going to be my next step. But first I have to figure out how
to uninstall this client which doesn’t seem to have an uninstaller in
the .dmg.


Just checkout project from repo by http.

Hi Bakki, could you provide more detail as to what you were doing to
generate this error message?



BTW, googling for it got a couple of links from a few folks who have
the same error but no one knows the solution.


uninstalling can be a bit exciting. if you installed using an
Installer.apppackage or meta-package (more likely of the two) then
there will be a
receipt in /Library/Receipts/. you could uninstall it using
or inspect its contents to see exactly what and where items were
using something like Pacifist[2].

to install a functional version of subversion via darwinports. download
install darwinports proper (it is tiger universal):

(add /opt/local to your path)

update darwinports:
% sudo port -d selfupdate

install subversion:
% sudo port install subversion


[1] Uninstaller
[2] Pacifist


Thank you very very much for this! Exactly what I was looking for. I
just had discovered /Library/Receipts/ within the past hour, but
didn’t quite know what to do with it. Coming from Linux/FreeBSD, I am
a bit shocked that Apple does not provide these utils.
