Ask yourself whether you need a hard copy. If you do, print it double sided

What type of filesystem is /altroot/ENGDATA/DeFRAC/defracdev/repository located on?

Can you send the output of:       df -T /altroot/ENGDATA/DeFRAC/defracdev/repository

It might be that the filesystem type doesn't support file locking.

My suspicion at this point is that it's an NFS mount not all versions of which fully support locking.

Dg.

Subject: FW: Problems with subversion

Hello,

I connect to a remote file system through a XVC terminal emulator.

Platform:               UNIX linux
Subversion version:     1.1.4

Following my previous e-mail below,

I was able to establish that the problem resides in my repository.

Whenever I issue any subversion command to the repository like:

        svnlook tree /altroot/ENGDATA/DeFRAC/defracdev/repository

The problem now I face is the following:

svn: Error opening db lockfile
svn: Can't get shared lock on file 'locks/db.lock': No locks available

It seems a file locking problem...

Many thanks
Paolo

Hello,
I have been using subversion for while now and without problems.

But recently when I was trying to commit my changes (svn commit -m "DeFrac final changes"),
from my local working copy, I got the following error message:

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///ENGDATA/DeFRAC/defracdev/repository/maintv2/trunk'
svn: Error opening db lockfile
svn: Can't get shared lock on file '/ENGDATA/DeFRAC/defracdev/repository/locks/db.lock': No locks available 

I tried to issue the recover subcommand (svnadmin recover /altroot/ENGDATA/DeFRAC/defracdev/repository), but
still I received the following message:

Repository lock acquired.
Please wait; recovering the repository may take some time...

Recovery completed.
svn: Error opening db lockfile
svn: Can't get shared lock on file '/altroot/ENGDATA/DeFRAC/defracdev/repository/locks/db.lock': No locks available

I would appreciate your help.

Many thanks
Paolo
