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!
idimmu@boosh:~/work/systems/trunk/dns$ svn ci idimmu.net -m “new funky domain”
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Aborting commit: ‘/home/rus/work/systems/trunk/dns/idimmu.net’ remains in conflict
After some reading it was easy to resolve!
idimmu@boosh:~/work/systems/trunk/dns$ svn resolved idimmu.net
Resolved conflicted state of ‘idimmu.net’
rus@boosh:~/work/systems/trunk/dns$ svn ci idimmu.net -m “new funky domain”
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 14281.
A lesson in regular svn updateing I guess 🙂
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.
