svn 1.6 - compression svndiff format data failed

Phil-86
Whenever I use "svn://" protocol to checkout numerous files at one time, I get the error "svn: compression svndiff failed data" at some point. However, this doesn't occure when using "file://" protocol. Does anyone know how to resolve this with svn v1.6? This doesn't occur with svn v1.7 but I prefer to use v1.6 because it works or integrate well with another product.

(You either misquote the message or mistranslate it.  In the latter
case, set LC_ALL=C in your environment.)

I'm curious about the latter part.  What products do you have that work
with 1.6 and not with 1.7?  We publish stable public APIs exactly to
prevent people from ending up in that state.

Please forgive me but how do you install the v1.7 libraries on top of v1.6.  Is it basically performing the compilation of v1.7 and installing it over the v1.6 directory location?

Well, you could try installing the 1.7 shared libraries on top of the
1.6 ones; should just work

Setting LC_ALL=C does not work either.  Wonder why it works for v1.7 but not for v1.6.  Again, I'm getting "svn: Compression of svndiff data failed" when executing "svn co svn://path/to/repo/prj working_directory".  But if I do a "svn co file:///...." then it's okay for v1.6.

The error is coming from zlib when compressing data.
Maybe svnserve is failing to compress data for transmission to the
client via the svn:// protocol.

If you use file:// the only possible interaction with zlib during a
checkout is decompressing data. Though it might not even be trying to
decompress anything at all depending on the content of the respitory
you are checking out from.

I would suspect that your Subversion 1.6 install has a problem with the
zlib it is using.

Has checkout ever worked with 1.6 and suddenly stopped working?
Was zlib updated or recompiled without also recompiling its dependencies?
Or are you trying to get a fresh Subversion install working?

That's all I can tell you given the information you provided.
Not sure what the problem really is, though.

I have about 155 packages in the repository that I want to checkout.  This has never worked with v1.6.  The workaround is to checkout each package one at a time (svn co svn://).  As you can see, that's very tedious.  I assume subversion doesn't care how many packages are in my repository.  I did the basic installation of svn v1.6 (tar'ing subversion-1.6.17.tar and subversion-deps-1.6.17.tar).  Then I did another installation but with v1.7 to see if I ran into the same issue.  I installed it on a different directory location.  I was able to checkout the 155 packages successfully.

Maybe I should download and get a better zlib package.  Let me try and keep everyone posted.

Well, it turns out that the other application does not support svn v1.7 but only v1.6.  Too bad I still cannot get v1.6 to perform massive checkout using the "svn co svn://..." syntax.  I guess I would have to write a unix shell script to help speed up my manual process.  What I'm doing is first perform "svn co svn://... -depth immediate".  Then "svn update -depth infinity" on each of the package folder (total 155).  Please let me know if anyone is able to figure this out and get it working.  Thanks in advance.
