09 - SVN Checkout Error

While working on Ubuntu Mate + Eclipse Mars + Subversive SVN Team Provider, I need to commit a few modified files using SVN client in Eclipse. I am using SVN Kit v1.8.12.10533 as SVN client to manage my code in eclipse. Though all functionality except “Commit” is working perfectly, to commit changes, I use SVN command line. (To know more on SVN command line, you can refer my other post on SVN here)

Ok, so error, it throws while committing …

svn: E200007: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E200007: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E200007: CHECKOUT can only be performed on a version resource [at this time].
svn: E175002: CHECKOUT request failed on 'file-path'
svn: E200007: Commit failed (details follow):
**svn: E200007: CHECKOUT can only be performed on a version resource** [at this time].
svn: E175002: CHECKOUT request failed on 'file-path'

Workaround is :

Perform a cleanup prior to committing or using an external tool (SVN command-line client or TortoiseSVN) instead of Subversive.

Open terminal go to project directory Then …

svn cleanup .

Now commit the files in eclipse. It will work perfectly. Enjoy :)
