Description brutzman 2007-12-20 21:53:40 UTC
subversion module is now incompatible with tortoise checkouts, throwing warnings at run time and not performing svn
operations in the IDE.  this apparently changed/broke between RC and final 6.0.

(undesirable) workaround:  clean checkout with netbeans, then avoid tortoise svn.
Comment 1 Tomas Stupka 2007-12-21 08:23:24 UTC
could you please elaborate? 

- what exactly you have done and what happened
- what is your svn tortoise and svn commandline version?
- could you also attach your messages.log file?

Comment 2 Tomas Stupka 2008-01-11 11:03:01 UTC
could you please provide more information?

Comment 3 brutzman 2008-01-19 00:36:11 UTC
system:  Netbeans 6.0 with weekly updates on plugins

also installed:  Tortoise svn and bash

when i check something out from Sourceforge, make a change, and try to commit the change in Netbeans, i get the
following console error:

==[IDE]== Jan 18, 2008 4:29:14 PM Committing...
ci -N --force-log -F C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\svn_message_61969 -m test commit from inside netbeans 6 --username brutzman

svn: Can't open file '/cygdrive/c/Program Files/NetBeans 6.0/.svn/entries': No such file or directory
==[IDE]== Jan 18, 2008 4:33:07 PM Committing... finished.

other points:
- Netbeans is not being launched from Windows.
- There is no directory '/cygdrive/c/Program Files/NetBeans 6.0/.svn/entries' and i don't know why it is looking there
- no properties evident under Advanced Options for versioning that are relevant

There doesn't seem to be any logical reason for Netbeans to utilize a cygdrive address (rather than c:) or to need to go
to that settings directory

Hope that helps!

the error message

svn: '/cygdrive/c/Program Files/NetBeans 6.0' is not a working copy
svn: Can't open file '/cygdrive/c/Program Files/NetBeans 6.0/.svn/entries': No such file or directory

is returned from the underlying svn client called by netbeans to process the commit action. It looks like it is the one
coming with cygwin which isn't supported now.

Comment 5 brutzman 2008-01-19 07:14:14 UTC
after reading fine print in netbeans svn faq: uninstalled cygwin svn, then installed collabnet svn

adjusted options for version control / svn and then restarted netbeans, now it works finally :)
