Unable to do svn update


Whenever I do an ‘svn update’ command, the process is cut off with the message ‘killed’ without the svn update being complete.

I’ve noticed this only happens if I have a lot of files updated. If I have a few files, say 5 files, it will go through as normal.

I tried ‘svn cleanup’ and retrying ‘svn update’, no go.

What am I doing wrong?

dreamhost has a process killer that prevents anyone from doing something resource-intensive for too long so it doesn’t affect the other people on that server. i forget how to do it, but you should be able to tell your svn update to run as a lower priority and not have it killed.
