My understanding is the OP wanted to keep his working copy on Linux
using LF line endings but checkout/update/edit on Windows. He asked

to which the answer is No. You cannot specify the type of line ending
you want for the checkout. Setting the svn:eol-style property will
automatically set the line ending *based on the platform the client runs
on*, but this is not what the OP wants.

I think the only way to achieve what the OP wants is keep all files with
LF in the repository, do *NOT* set svn:eol-style property, and use, as
he said, editiors that preserve the original file line endings.
