Svn E000002 Can T Open File

Investigation opportunities is one of the reasons why I oftentimes gravitate towards supporting others.

This case started relatively easily. Some colleagues tried to execute an automated build, that was supposed to:

  • prepare artifacts and resources on a shared Linux environment
  • rsync the content to a Windows build machine (push)
  • build MSI packages
  • rsync the results back (pull)

Svn: E000002: Can't create temporary file from template '/tmp/svn-XXXXXX'. First call to mktemp you will have a temp file open as /tmp/svn-a23451 the next call to. Svnadmin: E720002: Can't open file 'project1 format': The system cannot find the file specified. It appears to be looking for the format file which is actually located at project1.svn format. This has me puzzled as I'd expect it to look in the.svn subdirectory of project1, but instead is looking in the root.

SELinux problem again It's permission problem. But not 'classic' read/write permissions of apache user, but selinux one. Apache cannot write to files labeled as httpdsyscontentt they can be only read by apache. Svn: E000002: Can't create temporary file from template '/tmp/svn-XXXXXX': No such file or directory svn: E000002: Your commit message was left in a temporary file. PID= 23451, first call to mktemp you will have a temp file open as /tmp/svn-a23451 the next call to mktemp will result in /tmp/svn-b23451 and so on, eventually it will reach z. Subject: Re: Unable to checkout files: Can't open file: Permission denied I did that. I ran these two commands. Chgrp -R www-data myrepository chown -R 770 myrepository Now, I get this error: $ svn commit -m 'Updating' svn: Commit failed (details follow): svn: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem Please help.

The process worked alright until the last point, after which issues popped up.
The build was supposed to then create a subversion tag, which failed.

SCM activities, especially involved in automatic processes should be deterministic, rendering the team puzzled about the cause of the failure.

What we knew, is that there must have been something that changed, causing the build to fail from one version to another.

Having a look at the checkout folder on both platforms revealed a difference. Inside the build/folder1/folder2/folder3/.svn/text-base folder, there was a difference.

  • on Linux we had two versions of said file:
    • this.is.the.problematic.file.Look-At-Me.xml.svn-base
    • this.is.the.problematic.file.look-at-me.xml.svn-base
  • on Windows we only had one version:
    • this.is.the.problematic.file.look-at-me.xml.svn-base

I decided to pay a quick visit to the changelog page of the project, where the recent SCM activities are listed. At this point I was reminded that while I usually prefer to use Linux based systems and avoid Windows boxes, ignorance is never good.

This is simply what happened.

  • On Linux, every character in filename matters. Help.txt and help.txt are different.
  • On Windows, this is not the case

Svn E000002 Can T Open Files

When the process copied the files to the Windows machine, the .svn subfolders content got corrupted. Only one of the files remained.

Resolution was simple, we recognized there is no need to move the SCM content two ways. Excluding the .svn folder from the pulling mechanism resolved this problem, and the build succeeded.
