cd /home/rhose/tmp svnadmin create demo cd samples svn import . file:///home/rhose/tmp/demo -m "Initial import"
I tried it as:
svn import . file:///~/tmp/demo -m "Initial import"
and I got the same error you are getting... looks like you need to specify the path to your home directory.
Yeah, what tirwhan said. *Smiles* At least I had a reason to play with file: for a bit.
