I have a rather strange issue with Subversion 1.9.7 and I hope someone
of you can bring me in the right direction. I'm not able to load a dump
and/or svnsync to a new Subversion in version 1.9.7.
I create a dump on the server running 1.8.19 and try to load it on the
1.9.7 machine. Then I get an error:
svnadmin: E160004: Filesystem is corrupt
svnadmin: E200014: Checksum mismatch while reading representation:
I also get this error when i run "svnadmin load" with the "-M 0"
trick... On another machine running Subversion 1.8.10 I can load the
dump. So the dump is ok (furthermore, a "svnadmin verify" on the 1.8.19
server also runs successfully). Note that I was able to expoprt the file
from this revision (Windows with TortoiseSVN) and the checksum is
3168c2eb460868be4ec2e1a62084d80f - so the "expected" checksum in the
dump is ok.
Ok, I was not able load load the dump - so I tried svnsync. On the same
revision, the svnsync also stops:
svnsync: E160000: SHA1 of reps '51384 62 16385 20282
cc1652eaf2ef8cb91769dc4fea2d327413548c3e 51384-13nc/_21' and '-1 0 934
cc1652eaf2ef8cb91769dc4fea2d327413548c3e 51384-13nc/_21' matches
(cc1652eaf2ef8cb91769dc4fea2d327413548c3e) but contents differ
I've searched the Mailing-List archive and came across other people
having problems like this (but for them "-M 0 " did the trick). Sadly,
not for me....
Ok... what now? Is there a bug in 1.9.7? Or is Subversion on the server
side too old? Any ideas?
