Subversion: Errors when merging a branch

Recommended Posts

BTownTKD    205
I've been working on a supplemental XNA framework for some time on my own, using a personal web-hosting account with Dreamhost - which supplies easy Subversion setup - for my version control. I wanted to gain some experience with branching and merging, so I used TortoiseSVN to create a branch in a separate section of the repository, made the changes I wanted to make, and now am ready to merge it back into my trunk. Here's what I've tried: -Committed all my changes to the branch -Switched my local working copy back to the trunk -Clicked "merge" using TortoiseSVN, and selected the "reintegration a branch" option, using the branch folder as the source. But when I finally click "go," I recieve the following error;
"Retrieval of mergeinfo unsupported by 'http://myrepositoryurl.com/myrepository'"
Is this something that has a quick fix, or does my Dreamhost SVN server really not support merging? If not, does anyone else use Dreamhost for SVN hosting, and have a handy tutorial on overriding their copy with my own updated, locally-installed SVN binaries? Alternatively, am I just trying to merge incorrectly? Edit: The Dreamhost implementation of SVN is version 1.4.2, if that helps.

Uhm, have you already asked dreamhost or looked into the manual?

edit: Oh, and of course:

But of course - Google is my best friend. I posted this question concurrently with my own searching, just in case someone had a readily-available solution.

As it turns out, there is a somewhat-comprehensive upgrade tutorial in the Dreamhost wiki here, for anyone running into this problem in the future. I'm in the middle of building the source from the latest SVN release right now, but once it's set up I'll be sure to let the community know whether or not the problem was solved.

That is good, but I was asking if you already asked dreamhost support specifically. They might tell you what is enabled and what not.
