On OSX, svn: This client is too old to work with working copy ‘.’; please get a newer Subversion client
I got this message when trying to use Subversion on OS X through Terminal.
I checked out my svn version using “svn –version” and it said I was using 1.4.4 – so I decided to update. Here’s how…
Download the latest SVN binaries for OS X and install them just like any other program:
Update your system wide path settings by editing /etc/profile through the Terminal:
$ cd /etc/ $ sudo vi profile
At the top of the file, add the following line of text, then save and quit vi.
Then rename the old binary:
$ cd /usr/bin $ sudo mv svn svn.old $ cd ~ $ svn --version
And you should see the later version (mine is 1.5.5) and all is good.
