subversion working copy not getting updated

subversion working copy not getting updated

subversion working copy not getting updated

I'm using Totoise SVN on a Vista and a XP machine (both 32 bit). Versions are same on both; info is below. The server is BeanstalkApp.com.

I make a change on the Vista machine and commit. I check the repo online and see that the change is there. I update on the XP machine. No change takes place to the XP code but the version number (37) is updated to be the same as on Vista. The XP code is reported to be fully committed, and an attempt to commit does nothing.

When I check on the XP machine and do a diff, I see the change in the repo but crossed out. On the XP working copy, the original line is there.

I'm very puzzled: why isn't the XP version getting updated?


TortoiseSVN 1.6.7, Build 18415 - 32 Bit , 2010/01/22 17:55:06
Subversion 1.6.9,
apr 1.3.8
apr-utils 1.3.9
neon 0.29.3
OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009
zlib 1.2.3

RE: subversion working copy not getting updated

Some things I'd check are:

- Are the time and date settings correct on both machines?

- Are the SVN versions on both machines >= the SVN repo version?

- Did the XP machine have any outgoing changes (even whitespace)?
