Common SVN Errors

These errors seem to occur frequently, either while using SVN at the command-line, or when attempting to use Eclipse or Netbeans.

"Attempted to lock an already-locked dir"

This error message can be very annoying. It seems to occur”

  • after an SVN operation fails
  • after a network problem occurs
  • after an OS crash

In any case, the local SVN repository seems corrupt. To fix this at the command line, navigate to the affected directory and run this command:

~/myproject>svn cleanup

Or in Eclipse/Netbeans, find the “Cleanup” menu item under the SVN menu.
