Thread: Messed with kde svn client

  1. #1

    Default Messed with kde svn client

    Dear all,
    there is something wrong with my svn.
    In the kdesvn client I have double entries for the same files.

    In order help you understand my problem I have uploaded here a picture of that,
    ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

    at the bottom left side of the picture you will my main folder (starts with ap) and inside it there are the subfolders I have with my code. For some reason kdesvn shows each sub folder as a separate entry. Probably I messed up something there. Luckily, my local working folder structure is ok. One folder and inside it the subfolders only

    I tried removing some of the double entries from the kdesvn but both entries are removed. The "right one" + the one I call as double entry....

    One idea is to try to see what is the real structure of svn folders tree.. .Could you please help me solving this problem
    Regards
    Alex

    I don't understand that photo, I use plain svn.


    I would try downloading a brand new checkout on a new directory, and then
    copy there the files I know I modified, and commit them.


    Alternatively, I would run "svn status" on the directories to see what it
    says. It could be that you have double files because of conflicting
    commits, which you have to solve and decide which to delete and which to
    commit.

    Don't ask me how to do that with kde.


    You can try asking in the programming forum.

    Hm... Thanks a lot..

    The svn status just returns the list of files that are not tracked and just few files with M flag that are modified....

    If I can do a "reset" in kdesvn (it might be cashing something)

    Otherwise can I check out in a new directory and see what I get there? I also guess that I can also remove the files from the local hard disk.. Right?

    Verify those modified files. If I remember correctly (my usage of svn is
    limited, I only use it for translation work) it maybe you have clashes with
    the version upstream and then you get two local versions, perhaps also a
    diff file. The last time I had such a conflict was perhaps two years ago.

    Those things you have to solve manually, and I'm no expert at that: in my
    case the translator is only one person, so I can decide absolutely what to
    do with the files I translate.

    Yes, you can do that, there is no possible harm there until you do a commit.

    I guess.


    But I really think you should ask this in the programming forum, there will
    be more people versed in this svn intricacies than here in a general forum.
