I second that.

GMP also has a better license than etc.bigint,
it uses GNU LGPL versus AJ's "the Arse license":

I just tried it again, same error.  It generally takes 5-6 seconds to 
return (LAN-based connection), and by this time it has set up the SVN 
admin directory (with a few files and mostly empty subdirs) but not 
retrieved anything.

If I take out my proxy server connection, it takes a lot longer to fail, 
again gets only as far as setting up the admin directory and the error is

subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:670: (apr_err=175002)

The same goes for etc.unicode, by the way...

Kris's ICU wrapper in mango.icu is better,
and again: uses X License instead of "Arse" ?

Oh yea, and the licensing too <g>

I forgot to include a link to Ben's lib. earlier:

http://home.comcast.net/~benhinkle/gmp-d/

There is more info. on the GMP core there as well.

Attempt #1...

I found a thread that may help.  It's not exactly the same error, but 
close.  The first line is the same.

http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-07/0872.shtml

The bottom line of this thread is that a client upgrade may help your 
situation.  I'm not sure that it's the solution for you, though.

Kris had similar problems, but always while trying to upload huge 
amounts of DOxygen-generated html/image files.  He broke the job up into 
pieces and it seems to work.  He also upgraded his client software and 
it didn't help.


Okay, attempt #2...

In your hosts file, can you "temporarily" put the entry:
68.91.106.142  svn.dsource.org

Then attempt the checkout.  This is on the new server, and there's a 
slightly new path to use.  Effectively, I've done away with the 
/svn/projects/xxxx

http://svn.dsource.org/projects/deimos

This uses Subversion server 1.1.1 and is on a much faster box.  Also, 
there's no backup on the new server, but it's currently running on the 
PROD server.

Let me know if this helps or works better.

I was on 1.1.0, just upgraded to 1.1.3.

This hosts file didn't take on your machine.  I see your request for 
/projects/deimos in logs on the old server (68.91.106.141).  It may be 
that you have to exit out of your command-line tool to have the hosts 
file change take effect?

You can view the code in a browser here:
http://trac.dsource.org/projects/deimos/browser/

but I imagine that you really want to pull it to your local.  Again, I 
can send it to you in a zip, but I would rather work through the problem 
and have a public copy of our results for future searches to find.

I'm still skeptical about your client.  Not that you rebuilt from 1.1.0 
to 1.1.3, mind you.  In places, I'm still using a 1.0.x client against 
both 1.0.x and 1.1.x servers, and all is working fine.  I'm thinking 
something like your ISP decided to drop support for WebDAV-type calls 
over port 80 or something.  I know this was a problem with Yuriy, trying 
to work on DWT from Russia.

Thanks for trying to help troubleshoot...

Do you mean my shell session?  I'm not sure what that would have to do 
with it.  I tried in a new shell window, and it made no difference.

Or maybe I've edited the wrong hosts file?  The one I found was 
/etc/hosts.  Is there another one somewhere?

I ended up downloading the files individually off the website.  Still, 
it would be nice to be able to get it working via SVN.

I connect to the Internet via a university LAN.  I don't know if such a 
thing is likely to forbid such things.  And FTR I recall doing a 
successful SVN checkout before (http://something or svn://something, I 
forget which), but forget what it was.  Any idea how to check whether my 
connection allows WebDAV?

Not that I know of.  I'm not sure why you were still going to 
68.91.106.141 instead of .142.  But I see no requests in the logs on the 
new server (.142)  What does PING say after your hosts entry?

I'm not sure how to check.  You could try another site.  Try pulling a 
version of Trac:

% svn co http://svn.edgewall.com/repos/trac/trunk

and get another data point from another server.  I still don't think we 
even know if it's your client or the dsource.org server.  Anyone else 
out there having difficulties with dsource.org and pulling stuff from SVN?
