G'day,

Confession time.  I'm unfamiliar with Subversion.  Can use it well enough if nice easy to follow steps to follow exist.  I have a client setup and working at home, but that's half a planet away...  (Actually, it's a full planet away)  And I had to follow the wiki steps on downloading Lazarus quite carefully

I need to download FPVectorial, I'm having problems, and don't know enough to resolve...

I'm using RapidSVN (nice small download, first client I downloaded out here, simply can't remember what I use at home)

Go to Repository - Import

Use "http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk/components/fpvectorial" as the URL (sans quotes) and get the following error.

Quote
Execute: Import
Error: Error while performing action: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk/components/fpvectorial'
OPTIONS of 'http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk/components/fpvectorial': Could not resolve hostname `svn.freepascal.org': The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found.
 (http://svn.freepascal.org)
Ready

Anyone any tips?

Just some thoughts - don't know if those make a difference:
1. I don't know if that URL is the root of the repository - you might want to strip out some subdirs.
2. Though I doubt the server speaks it, try replacing http:// with svn:// to try the native subversion protocol instead of http

Nice try, but replacing http: with svn: changed the error
Code: [Select]
Execute: Import
Error: Error while performing action: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'svn://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk/components/fpvectorial'
Unknown hostname 'svn.freepascal.org'
Ready

I'm nervous about stripping out the subdirs, somewhere up that chain it becomes ~100Mb - OK for you guys on land, out here Bandwidth is a scarce commodity.

Bah, tried it anyway, all the way back to "http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus"  Original error each time with appropriate URL. 

I'll try a different client...

Does SVN operate over odd ports by any chance?  I assumed from the http: that it's all port 80.  One problem I've got is an extremely firewalled connection managed by a bunch of  >:( somewhere on land.  If SVN does any activity outside of port 80, that's going to be my problem :-(

I've switched to the Apache Command Line tools.  Error is now

svn: E731004: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk/components/fpvectorial'

And google returns nothing on that error code :-(

I don't have a copy of RapidSVN to try, however, I used
 
Code: [Select]
svn http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk/components/fpvectorial
and it worked fine, so the link to the files is correct.  Your error states import error; have you tried checkout instead?  Just a thought.

using turtoiseSVN I had no problem checking out http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk/components/fpvectorial/ at home. I would bet that its a firewall issue. I'm uploading what ever I checked out in the simplegraph sourceforge site as a rar archive for you grab it from there.

EDIT:
It should be up in a single mirror when you grab it leave a message so I can delete the file.

Very similar error with Checkout.

@Taazz, you're a star!  Appreciate that.  You ever in Perth, Au or Aberdeen, UK - I'll buy you a beer :-)

Don't worry about it, its a small thank you for your time in the clipboard issue.

@Taazz:  I think I've sent you a message - nothing appeared in my Sent Items though.  Regardless - many thanks, I've grabbed the download now...
