    Post Subversion, SVN Ubuntu, MAC and WIndows Help

    Hi,

    I'll try and keep this simple.

    I am trying to:

    1. Setup a Subversion SVN repository on my NAS drive
    2. Use my Ubuntu box, MAC OS X and Windows machines as local DEV environments and synch up with this NAS drive

    Is this possible?

    Can I use different Subversion \ SVN clients against the same repository? I am trying to just create a respository and not a Subversion\SVN server.

    Make sense?

    Both Ubuntu and OS X use the standard command-line SVN client. I don't know what you can use in Windows, but I would be surprised if you couldn't use it on the same repository.

    On Windoze, one will be able to. There's Tortoise (sp?) and also Netbeans (which I use) that are able to interface with SVN.

    +1 for the TortoiseSVN client - I've used it on both XP and Win7, with ssh+svn to a repository on a Fedora box. It also worked fine to a svn server on my Netgear NAS (Debian) which I set up just to try out.

    I have only used SVN a little, but I understood it to be inherently client-server. I didn't think you could also use it without a server. Am I wrong?

    Edit: My mistake: I am wrong. I wan't aware of file:/// type access.

    that is my understanding as well - I guess you *might* be able to run the server elsewhere and tell svnadmin to create the repo on a remote mounted location - I don't know

    i would run svn-server on the ubuntu machine. i do this at home and use rapid svn for linux and tortoise svn client for windows.

    i doubt your repository would be so huge that you would require a NAS. if it is i wouldnt trust samba/cifs with large amounts of data, i would just use a bigger hdd in the ubuntu box or if its a usb nas have it perminantly plugged into that but i still highly doubt you will need that much space.

    a project i work on has 4800 revisions and takes up about 2-3gb max.

    you can write your backups to a nas. not a silly idea.
