SVN conflict on all lines (LF), while edit a file using Windows then Unix (Mac, Ubuntu)

November 1, 2010 Leave a comment

This is a work around for a problem of committing changes to subversion using multiple operating system and the end of the line conflict.

If you collaborate on a text file or a source code file while multiple people editing the file using Windows and Unix (or Mac),

you might face a challenge for committing changes to subversion.

The problem is the conflict on all lines each time a file edited with Unix then Windows, and vise versa.

To resolve this issue use the following terminal comments to edit the property of the text (source code) file.

svn propset "svn:eol-style" "native" file1.txt

Reference: Red Bean File Property

The difficultyis that if you are using SQL Express you will realize that the steps and menus which are explained in is not available for you. So the only way to prepare your database is using SQL Statements. In summary the following steps are needed:

  2. Make sure your database has full-text search enabled, by checking the “use full-text indexing” in database properties, Going to “Files” and checking the “use full-text indexing” option
  3. Create catalogue: CREATE FULLTEXT CATALOG MyFullTextCatalog
  4. CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX ON Production.ProductReview(Comments)
