I am trying to migrate our svn repository to git using the directions from https://www.atlassian.com/de/git/migration
When I run the command to verify the prerequisites, I get the error
subversion: ERROR: unable to determine version
I am running the command on the subversion server, svn is installed and gets the following output in commandline:
svn, Version 1.7.4-SlikSvn-1.7.4-WIN32 (SlikSvn/1.7.4) WIN32

Can you help me fixing this problem?
Thanks a lot & best regards
It looks like the migration script tries to check the version of the
svn binary, but due to it not being in the expected format, it fails.
Can you try using a non-translated or English version of Subversion? Depending on how the translations are done, doing this before running the commands may help:
After that, check if the output of
svn --version changes.
I am getting similar error (in bold) when I run verify command:
>java -jar svn-migration-scripts.jar verify
svn-migration-scripts: using version 0.1.56bbc7f
Git: using version 2.5.3.windows.1
Subversion: ERROR: Unable to determine version.
git-svn: using version 2.5.3.windows.1
I have Tortoise-SVN installed on my windows machine. And I think the same error is causing next command to fail:
>java -jar svn-migration-scripts.jar authors <svn_repo> > authors.txt
About to create the authors file.
Exception in thread "main" java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "svn": Create Process error=2, The system cannot find the file specified
at java.lang.ProcessBuilder.start(Unknown Source)
Can someone please help me out here. What I am doing wrong or missing anything?
I had this same issue.
You need to run the Tortoise-SVN installer again and modify the current installation. This will allow you to install the command line tools.
Once you have the command line tools installed you will be able to run svn -- version and the migration scripts.
