Thanks for the replies all,
I have it working now! the bizarre thing is I am sure I already tried
just entering the full path manually before without success but today it
wants to work.
So I just enter:
svn co file:///home/jonr/svn/repos/myproject/trunk wiptrunk
and it works.
What are the problems with using the file:/// approach? tbh I mostly
only ever work on it ssh'd into the server itself. If I want to work on
it on a local machine I use the svn+ssh protocol without problems.
