Subversion checkin error


Can't open file '/home/<username>/svn/<projectname>/db/txn-protorevs/1660-9.rev':

I get this error when I try to check in a text file I’ve modified. Any clues what I might be able to do? Should I just bite the bullet and recreate the repository? The history is not terribly meaningful, but the code is.



Hard to tell what’s going on without more details… Is the file still there or did its read permission get revoked for some reason? Do you have a backup of the repository? Maybe restore that file from it?


The file does not exist - it’s a lock file that gets created when the proper permissions are granted.
At this point I think the best bet might be to wipe the repository and rebuild it from my sources.
