Using the SVN command to update the NEAT Repositories
- Last Updated: 06/19/2019
Subversion (svn) is used to keep all of the extra programs supplied with NEAT updated.
In order to update your host server, you need to connect to a working internet connection and run these commands:
cd /opt/shared; svn update; svn status cd /opt/scripts; svn update; svn status
If you get an error message about a repository checkout not being clean (can happen if a previous svn update was interrupted before it could finish) run this command:
Do not edit any of these files; if you have a patch to submit you can send it to NEAT, and we will look it over. If you edit a file and make a change that is not compatible with a future change that we make at NEAT, you will get a conflict on update.
If that happens you may need to remove the file and run another update.
If you have a conflict you cannot resolve, here is how you can check out the shared folder again:
rm -rf /opt/shared/ cd /opt; svn co https://svn.ipengines.net:2397/svnpub/rwtrainer/kvm_shared/ shared
And the scripts folder:
rm -rf /opt/scripts/ cd /opt; cd /opt; svn co https://svn.globalweb.net:2396/svnpub/rwtrainer/kvm_scripts_pristine scripts
If you need the svn password:
user: rwtrainer pass: 15.learner
These can be stored unencrypted. This will allow you to update in the future without typing them in.
