Thanks for your responses. I have tried changing the handled backends variable but this makes no difference. I have solved my problem however, by changing the svn sub-directory name that emacs recognises as a repository i.e. in vc-svn.el I changed


Best regards,

In Emacs 23.X (perhaps also in the released 22.X versions) you can

customize the value of `vc-handled-backends':

,---[ C-h v vc-handled-backends RET ]----------------------------------


| vc-handled-backends's value is

| (RCS CVS SVN SCCS Bzr Git Hg Mtn Arch)


| Documentation:

| List of version control backends for which VC will be used.

| Entries in this list will be tried in order to determine whether a

| file is under that sort of version control.

| Removing an entry from the list prevents VC from being activated

| when visiting a file managed by that backend.

| An empty list disables VC altogether.
