Thanks for your reply. I donwloaded and installed subversion 1.5 for Windows in my computer. Could you tell me how to set-up repository using subversion so that every subversion client can check-out and check-in?
Carlson, Tim is correct that it's a lot to type out all those instructions - especially since a free book exists. I don't know of this is the one Tim is referring to, but O'Reilly has an "open-source" copy of this book online
But I failed to use subclipse 1.0.6 in Eclipse Europa when trying to create a repository of URL "file:///svn_repository/mt258/program". An exception "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException:couldn't open a repository svn:Unable to open an ra_local session to URL" was displayed.
I got the following error messages on the console: Couldn't open a repository svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///svn_repository/mt258/program' Unsupported FS format svn: Expected FS format '2'; found format '3'
Couldn't open a repository svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///c:/svn_repository/mt258' Unsupported FS format svn: Expected FS format '2'; found format '3'
Couldn't open a repository svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL svn: Unable to open repository 'file://c:/svn_repository/mt258'
Could anyone advise what's going wrong? I stuck on this issue for a week. Now, I am wondering if CVS will be easier to setup and use. Since I have read comments in this forum, I used subversion + subclipse, just cannot imagine that it is so hard to set-up.
For your information, I just have one hard disk C:, I installed subversion server 1.5.0, subclipse plug-in and eclipse all in C: drive. Also, the OS is Windows XP SP2.
What version of subversion are you using? The error message
Expected FS format '2'; found format '3'
implies that the version of subversion you are running is newer that what is supported by the subclipse version you are running. You could try upgrading subclipse to version 1.4.3.
I agree that it is often a painstaking process to get some of this open-source stuff up and running (rarely is it "run the installer and it just works"), but it is worth it - once you have it working you will wonder how you ever did without it.
Many thanks Peter, your advice are 100% correct. I used a subclipse 1.0.6. Now I download subclipse 1.4.3 which requires MyLyn plug-in 3.0. Then after installing both plug-ins, the repository path automatically appeared in SVN view.
But the final question is that I hope the SVN view is in English but it is in Chinese. I am reading English subclipse manual, it is hard for me to translate to Chinese although I am using Chinese Windows XP SP2.
Can anyone advise how to ensure subclipse plug-in installed can be in English version? The other plug-ins in Eclipse are in English.
Thanks in advance, Calson

I finally managed to use subclipse 1.4.3 to open repository in Eclipse. Since there are so many experts here willing to help novice like me, I hope that I can help others to tackle technical problems.
BTW, I solved the problem of displaying Chinese version subclipse view in Eclipse, it is caused by regional settings in control panel.
