I have a client machine that has Subversion version 1.6.11. I was told that I needed to upgrade my Subversion client version to match the Subversion server version. Here is what I have installed under installation details: We are using Python on our project and I have the Py Dev plugin installed. Under SVN select "Checkout Projects from SVN" and press Next 3. Enter the URL for the svn repository and press Next Next I get an error message like the following, "Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl. Initially it was set to "Java HL (JNI)" and had the text "Not Available" after that. Next I select "Check out as a project in the workspace" 9. Can anyone see what I am doing wrong and also answer the question as to why it seems like I have to upgrade the client svn version to match the server's version? I am on a project where we have a Subversion server that is using version 1.7.14. From "Py Dev Package Explorer", right-click and select "Import" 2. On mine I have "SVNKit (Pure Java) SVNKit v126.96.36.19906.
I cannot really help with that as it is different for everyone.
I have resisted to ask why you want to use an ancient version of Subclipse.
I think we thought this meant we had to have Subversion 1.7 installed as the client.
After unzipping the site-1.8.22file into my Eclipse dropins directory and restarting Eclipse, I was able to select File / New / Project / Checkout Projects from SVN and then extract the svn files locally into my workspace even though I have the svn 1.6 client installed locally.
You should get to a point that your can add your repository via its URL and browse it. I did exactly the same steps on a machine where Subclipse works correctly and the one where it doesn't. I am using the svn ssh protocol for specifying the URL.
