Bug Description

Binary package hint: subversion

arun@arun-desktop:~/test/trunk$ svn up
svn: OPTIONS of '': timed out waiting for server (

Debugging this issue I have found that no matter whatever svn repository I am loging on, there is no response for the OPTIONS method send and after the timeout period, the client terminates with the above error.

The site is reachable from the network and I can open the source in firefox as well.

I am using http_proxy and https_proxy as well, still did not help.

The failing case is:

setsockopt(4, SOL_TCP, TCP_NODELAY, [1], 4) = 0
fcntl64(4, F_GETFL) = 0x802 (flags O_RDWR|O_NONBLOCK)
connect(4, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(...), sin_addr=inet_addr(".........")}, 16) = -1 EINPROGRESS (Operation now in progress)
poll([{fd=4, events=POLLOUT}], 1, 100000) = 1 ([{fd=4, revents=POLLOUT}])
getsockopt(4, SOL_SOCKET, SO_ERROR, [0], [4]) = 0
fcntl64(4, F_SETFL, O_RDWR) = 0
send(4, "OPTIONS HTTP/1.1\r\nUser-Agent: SVN/1.6.6 (r40053) neon/0"..., 435, 0) = 435
send(4, "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\"?><D:options xmlns:D=\"DAV:\"><D:activity-collection-set/></D:opti"..., 104, 0) = 104
poll([{fd=4, events=POLLIN}], 1, 100000) = 0 (Timeout)
close(4) = 0

I have tried taking similar trace for working tools (this one using wget)

connect(3, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(....), sin_addr=inet_addr("......")}, 16) = 0
select(4, NULL, [3], NULL, {900, 0}) = 1 (out [3], left {899, 999994})
write(3, "GET HTTP/1.0\r\nUser-Agent: Wget/1.12 (linux-gnu)\r\nAccept: */*\r\nHost:\r\n\r\n", 109) = 109
select(4, [3], NULL, NULL, {900, 0}) = 1 (in [3], left {899, 588868})
recv(3, "....

this is working fine

can I know if there are any options I can select with svn / configure it with to make it work for me any workarounds?
