So, all of a sudden, I'm having massive problems with my Subversion server. Basically, nothing works. I can't seem to check new files in (it appears to crash svnserve, resulting in broken pipe exceptions) and I also see problems checking files out.
I'm in the middle of a full backup of my laptop (before my big trip to Boston and then Tucson). I think, after that, I'll dump out my repository, and rebuild it as a file system (not Berkeley DB) version. I've heard people claim that SVN in server mode doesn't work well with Berkeley DB, but I had thought that was only when you have multiple users pounding on it.
This is frustrating, and bad timing. I'm concerned that I'll have data, or at least revisions, in SVN I can't access. We'll see. It's always something.
Anyway, this is why I haven't had a chance to update the code for the NFJS project to include the latest code and presentations. I can't get things into SVN so that I can properly build and deploy.
Update: It's possible that I have a bad sector on my hard drive (Acronis has found an unreadable sector ... it's impossible to say if this bad sector has anything to do with my Subversion repository). Either way, reading (if possible) the repository to a dump format, and building a new file-system repository, should be a reasonable approach.
