I am having trouble with migrating a SVN (version 1.2.3) repo to a new server. In the process I want to update the repo and server to the latest SVN version.
I have tried dumping the repo, but found I run into a few 'malformed' revisions. Google-fu'd a bit and found a suggestion to do the dump in batches and skip the broken revisions.
Unfortunately, trying to load the dumped files is causing all sorts of issues... 1. If I try and load it directly, I receive 'non-LF' endings found errors. I try converting the line endings using notepad++ to unix format, but this doesn't seem to work. 2. I can use 'bypass-prop-validation' on the load. this works, but when I load a later dump file(revisions after the malformed ones I skipped).. it appears the skipped revisions are referenced and I am getting 'checksum mismatch' errors.
I am really after just a clear and clean way to try and upgrade and migrate the repository.
