Tower Help & Support

I'm getting the following error with git-svn: "Can't locate SVN/"

When using Tower on OS X 10.8 with Subversion Repositories (git-svn), the following error can occur:

    Can't locate SVN/ in @INC (@INC contains: [...]

Since version 10.8, Mac OS X does not include certain PERL Subversion libraries anymore which are required by the git-svn installation bundled with Tower.

The only solution at the moment is as follows:

  1. Download and install the latest Xcode command line tools from Apple:
  2. Change the Git binary used by Tower. You can do so by opening Tower's Settings on the "Git Config" tab. There, you should configure to use the system binary ( /usr/bin/git).
