Checking out BZFlag 2.0.x and 2.1.x latest version help

Post by GMMan » Sun May 13, 2007 5:45 pm

I have just recently set up my new Puppy Linux on my 1 gig USB stick and is trying to download the latest BZFlag sources. I've got SVN installed but now with the Berkly DB (I think that's what it's called). When I tried to check out the main codes, I get a weird error:

Code: Select all

sh-3.00#  svn co https://bzflag.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/bzflag/trunk bzflag
svn: Unrecognized URL scheme for 'https://bzflag.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/bzflag/trunk'
sh-3.00# 
I'm not sure about why that happens. Could anyone help me get the pre-release versions?
I haven't touched BZFlag for years, but maybe sometime I'll make a comeback.

I'm on Twitter. And I mess with webOS. This signature is not a blog.

I think you need to configure SSL support for svn. You might need to compile from source to get that (it was a pain when I did it... had to download several other packages too as I recall).

Was curl a requirement? I've installed that, but not the ssl lib with it.

Don't know. If you compiled from source, run ./configure with the SSL option (can't remember exactly what it is), and check the output for anything else that it may need. It will probably be a bit of a trial-and-error experience.

"svn --version" should output all the URL handlers it has. Probably you were missing OpenSSL when you built SVN, so it did not build https.

Code: Select all

svn, version 1.4.3 (r23084)
   compiled Mar 29 2007, 09:36:06

Copyright (C) 2000-2006 CollabNet.
Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.tigris.org/
This product includes software developed by CollabNet (http://www.Collab.Net/).

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV) protocol.
  - handles 'http' scheme
  - handles 'https' scheme
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
  - handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' scheme
Additionally, you don't NEED to use HTTPS; SF.net also exports over ordinary HTTP (just change the URL). HTTPS is only required for checkins.
