svn: Aborting commit: remains in conflict

I got this annoying SVN error today, that I hadn’t come across before. Even after resolving the conflict in the file, highlighted by lots of <<<<<<<, I still couldn’t get my commit to work!

[email protected]:~/work/systems/trunk/dns$ svn ci -m “new funky domain”
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Aborting commit: ‘/home/rus/work/systems/trunk/dns/’ remains in conflict

After some reading it was easy to resolve!

[email protected]:~/work/systems/trunk/dns$ svn resolved

Resolved conflicted state of ‘’

[email protected]:~/work/systems/trunk/dns$ svn ci -m “new funky domain”
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 14281.

A lesson in regular svn updateing I guess 🙂

Version Control with Subversion

For more SVN advice, I recommend Version Control with Subversion by O’Reilly. It contains everything you need to know when using or managing SVN repositories.
