RE: [] Installing SVN

Title: Message
The Subversive Installation instructions are actually quite clear. You just
have to read them carefully and not assume that you know better; I got
it very badly wrong too.
The problem is that the Eclipse contribution is layered on a non-Eclipse
product. Why isn't it in Orbit?
Note also that if you want interoperability with other tools such as TortoiseSVN
you must use Window | Preferences | SVN | SVN Connector to select the development
rather than default connector kit. (SVN recently changed its magic version number.)
Having now used both CVS and SVN extensively, I cannot recommend CVS
too strongly. Every time you copy or refactor in an SVN area expect nightmares.

Hi John,


I had the same problem with the connectors, and I found this reference on Subversive News list: which helped me to install the 0.7.3 version from subversive.


I just had to use the update site to correctly install the connectors.
Hope this can help you fix your problem.

Apologies for spamming the list, but I’m trying to install the SVN eclipse plugin into my Ganymede install base and can’t seem to get all the ducks to line up.


If I just unzip the plugin manually into the install area, when I try and use it complains about a connector which I also manually added but can’t seem to

Get the two to see each other


When I try and use the software update feature, I get a lot of ‘invalid zip file format’ errors.


Anybody have any good doc or forum or person pointers?
