This means your svn client was compiled without SSL support (or the webdav
lib that svn uses, neon, was compiled without SSL support).

a chunk error is likely a TCP/IP problem. Sounds like your connection to
the ASF svn server is a bit flakey. When you get a write lock error you
can run 'svn cleanup' on your local copy, then do 'svn up' of that copy
over and over again (running 'svn cleanup' several times perhaps, or rm -Rf
broken parts of the working copy) until you get everything.

you can see whether any particular service is down. SVN has held up pretty
well over the last few weeks...Gems of info like this are at
http://www.apache.org/dev/ :-)

If the problem persists, you might want to consider trying to use svk for
maintaining your working copy:


I've heard reports that its a little better at dealing with HTTP / TCP
