Subversion client is too old to work with working copy ubuntu linux

by on Jul.05, 2009, under linux/ubuntu

Likely you have tried to do an an svn command on your working copy and it’s giving you the following error:

svn: This client is too old to work with working copy ‘.'; please get a newer Subversion client

Initially I had thought it was a version miss-match with how the repo was checked in, or the server client the repo was hosted with. But it just so happened that I had checked it out with a newer version initially, and then moved it to another box that had a lower subversion client.

In any case, doing a fresh checkout (svn co) on my working copy solved this issue for me. But you may also update your subversion client.
