Configuring JavaHL for Eclipse is not as straightforward as it could be so posting a quick HOWTO. Following applies mostly to Linux users.
With Ubuntu the fool-proof steps are:
- Make sure libsvn-java, subversion and libsvn1 packages are installed
- Add following to the end of your eclipse.ini file: -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/jni
- Restart eclipse and make sure JavaHL is selected under Window->Preferences->Team->SVN
By using JavaHL it gets more likely that your svn repo doesn't get screwed up when using both command-line/shell and subclipse for svn.
