Gnu Arch annoyance: unable to aquire revision lock

posted Feb 11, 2009, 12:17 PM by Jade Rubick


Moving to OpenHosting.net (and liking it so far). Setting up Arch, tried to commit:

arch_commit: unable to acquire revision lock (could not rename file.)
tree: /home/safe4all-dev/safe4all-dev
revision: jade@safe4all.org--2005/openacs--dev--5.1.0--patch-11

Tried to get the permissions right, but that wasn't the problem.

The issue is that you need a directory in

/{archives\}/2005/openacs/openacs--dev
/openacs--dev--5.1.0/patch-(highest-number-here)

called ++revision-lock
and a directory under that called
+contents

If that's not there, no dice.
