We have a Subversion server running on an internal server. I'm trying to connect to it through SubClipse (Eclipse) on Ubuntu.

When I enter the URL: svn://servername/site/trunk as I do from Windows. I get the following error:

Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: Malformed network data"

Anybody got any ideas?

For what it's worth, I've had a lot more success using Subversive and not Subclipse. Subversive is also an Eclipse incubator project. –  Owen Jan 9 '10 at 3:55

Have you got ssh access to the machine 'servername'? If so you could try :

svn+ssh://username@servername/site/trunk

If you post more of the error log it would be easier to help you ;)

Maybe check if the subversion version you use is the same the servers uses.

You can try to check your proxy settings in Window > Preferences > Network too.

Try http protocol and not svn protocol.

It ended up being a number of different things. I un-installed everything, eclipse, subversion, subclipse, etc. Re-installed, then everything worked fine.

That's linux for ya.

Thanks for the tips anyway.
