Have you tried looking into the SVN property - svn:eol-style?

If you are always pulling the information from SVN and no direct
modifications are performed on the server then there should not be any
conflicts. If you are making direct (manual) modifications on the
server and then using SVN for syncing the changes then you are bound
to get problems. I had worked in a similar environment a couple years
ago and did not have any problems.
