Week[0] = Ahead of Schedule; SVN Problems Ensue

June 1, 2008 at 12:03 | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

This week, I have finished the Preferences window design, and am slowly implementing the controls.

However, I have run into some problems with my svn repo – mainly that I keep getting an error saying that a file already exists when I try to commit any files. I have looked this problem up, and am short on answers.

Here is the error I get:

Some of selected resources were not committed.
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Path ‘/svn/branches/development/wxcpan/CPANPLUS-Shell-Wx-0.01’ already exists

  1. This sounds like a case-sensitivity issue. When I see error messages like that, it’s usually because the SVN server has a case-sensitive filesystem (e.g. Linux/BSD) while the client is case-insensitive (Mac/Win), and someone earlier committed two files which differ only in case from a case-sensitive client.

    If I’m right, one solution is to use a case-sensitive client to “svn rm” one (or both) of the conflicting files and then “svn update” the case-insensitive clients.

    A long-term solution is to add a pre-commit trigger that checks for invalid filenames. A web search will surely turn up such a trigger script for case-sensitivity issues.
