Trying to check out my Android project from an SVN repository, I got the following error:
0x0000000f: The folder 'E:\workspace\mc-01-02\project.properties' is locked by some external process. Please unlock the folder and try to check out the project again.
project.properties actually is a file, not a folder.
As a test, I created another project and added the "project.properties" file to svn:ignore. I got this:
0x0000000f: The folder '/media/D/workspace/andi/.fuse_hidden00002a6900000003' is locked by some external process. Please unlock the folder and try to check out the project again.
Again, ".fuse_hidden00002a6900000003" is a file, not a folder. In both cases, the files were created with content and perfectly readable.
As you might have noticed, I tried this from a Windows Eclipse and a Linux Eclipse. (I have my workspace on my Windows partition.) Both attempts failed. Yet, checking out to a workspace on the Linux partition succeeded.
I'm using Eclipse Galileo with the Subversive plugin.
This might be a problem with Android tools interfering?!?
