Expected FS format '2'; found format '3' (Beginners problem Installation) [message #38331] Wed, 26 November 2008 14:59 Go to next message

Hello,

today I decided to start using subversion to mangage my C++ projects and
also found subversive.

I installed subversion under Windows XP using file
"Setup-Subversion-1.5.3.msi" (later also tried
"Setup-Subversion-1.5.1.en-us.msi") and it works. Also I installed
subversive and svn connectors and it is available in Eclipse IDE.

I used "svnadmin create" to create a repository and then tried to add
the repository location to subversive, by entering the URL to "New
Repository Location" dialog. This results in following message:

"
Location information has been specified incorrectly

svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///D:/Daten/SVN'
svn: Expected FS format '2'; found format '3'
"

What's wrong? Is it a problem of installation or usage?

Thank you,

Ed

Hello Edzard,

It seems that you use 'old' client to access a 'new' repository, probably
you created a repository with svn 1.5 and tried to access it with svn 1.4.
So try to change SVN Connector to 1.5.x, you can do it at
Preferences/Team/SVN in SVN Connector tab.
For more details about SVN formats, please, see

I am having a similar problem getting the error:

"Expected FS format '2'; found format '3' "

I'm running a SVN 1.5.6 server and trying to connect to a SVN 1.5
repository. I'm using Subversive 0.7.8.I20090428-1500 and my connector
setting is set to SVNKit (SVN/1.5.2 SVNKit/1.2.0 r4949).

I have the same setup on another computer and it works just fine. Anyone
have any ideas for debugging this problem?

The problem has been fixed. It seems that uninstalling all SVN connectors
other than the SVNKit 1.2.0 fixed the problem. I'm not sure what the
issue was but it seems to connect okay now. We have had simiar SVN
problem with IBM's RAD and WID before when more than one type of connector
in installed.
