I'm about to commit a change to remove our SVN externals and replace
them with real subdirectories. This is mainly aimed at making branching
easier (you won't have to remember to also branch all the externals).
I've just done it. I hope it doesn't cause too much trouble in the short
term. Here are the instructions again for how to fix your working
When you update, you will see an error like this:
svn: URL 'svn://svn.insecure.org/nping' of existing directory 'nping'
does not match expected URL 'svn://svn.insecure.org/nmap/nping'
Here's what you need to do. First, save any local changes you might have
in the nping, nsock, nbase, ncat, and zenmap directories. (For example
by running "cd nping; svn diff > ../nping.diff".) If you don't have any
local changes you can skip this step.
Then run these commands:
rm -rf nping/ nsock/ nbase/ ncat/ zenmap/
If all else fails, you can just delete your whole working directory and
check out anew:
svn co --username guest --password "" svn://svn.insecure.org/nmap
