This is more of a subversion question, although I’m encountering this problem with the redmine stack. I’m trying to set the root for svnserve to /media/Local Disk/svn. I’ve been able to do this successfully on Windows XP, but now I’m using Xubuntu. The current line I have in the startup script is this:

SVN_START=”/BitnamiRedmine/redmine-0.7.2-0/subversion/bin/svnserve -d—listen-port=3690—pid-file=$SVN_PIDFILE -r /media/Local Disk/svn”

However, when I run, this doesn’t work. I’ve also tried—root=blah/blah and other variants. Could someone please tell me what would be the correct command here?

Thank you in advance for any help.

It should be run. I tried to start with a repository and it runs well. You should execute ”./ start”. What error you can see if you execute manually the following action?

$ /BitnamiRedmine/redmine-0.7.2-0/subversion/bin/svnserve -d—listen-port=3690— -r /media/Local Disk/svn
