Uploading FEZ hydra firmware


#1

I am uploading the hydra firmware but I hit a brick wall :wall:

tortoisesvn is not working with long paths and we do have some every long ones!

For example

C:…\NETMF4.1Firmware\DeviceCode\DeviceCode\GHI_OSH_Drivers\libraries\GHIElectronics.OSH.NETMF.Hardware\Managed\GHIElectronics.OSH.NETMF.HardwareGHIElectronics.OSH.NETMF.Hardware.csproj

That was the path for one of the files and on top of this it goes into main/GHIelectronics/mainboards/fezhydra…etc on the gadgeteer codeplex.

How can we solve this? I am not seeing anything on the web about a fix :wall:

NO NO NO NO! Fix it! I want the firmwares!

Will shortening the path help ?

May be you can use SUBST command to shorten the path a little bit
eg:

subst H: “C:…\NETMF4.1Firmware\DeviceCode\DeviceCode\GHI_OSH_Drivers\libraries\GHIElectronics.OSH.NETMF.Hardware\Managed”

You may need to limit the path to 254 characters to the subst command. Once set using “H:” or what ever drive letter you used will get you to the same path.

OR

Use the svn client from command line

check the syntax for “svn up c:\very\long\path”

OR

check the syntax for “svn co http://path/to/source/control c:\very\long\path”

The very long path is a windows limitation, not SVN.
