Svn checksum mismatch while updating
Trust me, you don’t want to edit those files directly. A checksum is a shortened hash that represents the contents of a file.
Before committing (saving) a file, SVN compares the latest revision of the file in the repository with the corresponding, locally saved, latest revision. If the checksum for a file changes, you know it has been altered.
Client Exception: Checksum mismatch while updating 'D:\WWW\Project\.svn\text-base\svn-base'; expected: '3f9fd4dd7d1a0304d8020f73300a3e07', actual: 'cd669dce5300d7035eccb543461a961e' The easiest way to fix it (if you don't have many changes) is to copy your changes to another directory, delete the directory where your project is checked out, and checkout the project again.
Then copy your changes back in (don't copy any folders) and commit, and continue. One blog post with the "just checkout the entire repo again and then copy files" solution claimed that their text editor was "automatically" editing files inside the folder but I know that's not the case for me since I have that folder excluded from any global search functionality...
Solutions based on checking out a new repo and copying the one file over avoids this as you get a base file that matches its version saved in
What would be useful is a way to refresh the .svn/ This happened to me using the Eclipse plug-in and synchronizing.
Contrary to the title of the blog post, however, I didn’t find Chris’s instructions all that clear, so I thought I’d take a shot at explaining it in a way that is maybe a little easier to follow.
SVN is software that helps you track revisions to files.
A way you can make the checksum of the base file no longer match the saved checksum is if you edit the base file stored in .svn/. I love it enough to choose to spend most of every day with it front-and-center on my screen.The next time I tried to commit changes to my repository, I got an error message something like the following: The above is actually taken straight from an article called “subversion checksum mismatch - easy workaround.” I’m glad I found the article because it helped me fix the problem.
