Eclipse Android project SVN checkout: folder locked

Postby Droppy » Fri Oct 21, 2011 2:55 pm

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?!?

Input, anyone?

Okay, so I checked out the project to my Linux workspace and imported it into my Windows workspace. I didn't know that Eclipse would copy the repository information! However, I had to manually copy and paste some files' contents... But for now, the workaround seems to work for me.

Meh, it didn't actually copy the files to my Windows partition, so I still can't access them from within Windows...
