SVN Checkout issue on remote agent

I setup a remote agent on a Redhat Enterprise 6 box. It attempts to check out the source from the SVN and I get this error...

2-Feb-2012 15:49:05 Error occurred while running Task 'Checkout Default Repository(1)'. This build will fail. Caused by:
22-Feb-2012 15:49:05 java.lang.RuntimeException: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: Failed to checkout source code to revision '2615' for http://svnserver/svn/trunk</td<>>

I think you've used a SVN 1.7 command line client on that workspace and it automatically upgraded your workspace. SVN 1.7 workspace format is not yet supported by Bamboo.Remove that directory and everything should work fine. Make sure that you don't use tools that perform working copy update to 1.7.

You can track this improvement request here

I have already removed SVN 1.7 and put 1.6 on there. I also tried removing all the folders and reinstalled the agent

Got it resolved. There was a .svn folder higher up in the hierarchy

For the record, I just saw a similar issue:

Error occurred while running Task 'Checkout Default Repository(1)'. This build will fail. Caused by:
error26-Feb-2013 10:12:33java.lang.RuntimeException: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: Failed to checkout source code to revision

Deleting the bamboo repository and recreating it helped.
