I have several SVN repositories on an Windows network fileshare. The user has full control, read, write, and just about every other permission that can be added. When trying to commit he gets the error:
Can't open file '//fileshare/svnrepos/projectname/db/txn-current-lock': Permission denied
It's being accessed via file:///, which I know is badbadterrible svn user but I don't know how else to set it up given I am not an admin and this fileshare is all we have available.
I've dug around a bit and been told I need to be using snvserve, but we don't have svnserve running on the remote share. I can try executing it from my machine but it just hangs, never prints anything. I can't install or really do much to the remote machine.
I know it would be better to have this on an svn server, but to get this up and running in the mean time, what do I need to look at? (And ideally, how could I get an svnserver going? Would I need to talk to some of the admins that take care of that share?)
