RE: [Subclipse-dev] svn:esternals - lock error

I'm trying to follow you advice but the last version of subversion client I have 1.4.2 gives me the following message:

svn: This client is too old to work with working copy 'EEBXXX_YYYZZZ'; please get a newer Subversion client

I know I saw this before in the list, your answer was:

" he issue is with Subversion. Subclipse includes Subversion 1.4 and it
introduced a new working copy format. You either need to update your
command line to Subversion 1.4.2, or you need to switch to using the
JavaHL library, which you would have to install but would be the same
version as your command line client."

But I am using the 1.4.2 version already :( What am I doing wrong?

        I'm trying to use a svn:esternals property with the local path pointing to an existing directory but I keep receiving this error:

Updating external location at: D:/workspace/EEBXXX_YYYZZZ/Dev

svn: Working copy 'D:\workspace\EEBXXX_YYYZZZ\Dev' locked

        Is there a way to do it?

        I'm not sure whether this is a Subclipse problem or not (probably NOT), but I read in SVN book and found no limitation about it so I decided to post in here.

If there is a problem it would like within the client adapter you are using.  Try running svn up from the command line.  If that does not work, then most likely you are doing something that isn't supported.

I can tell you that the svn:externals property has to point at a path relative to the property location and a URL.  A file system path cannot be entered in either part of the property.
