Have a look at properties in the book:


More importantly, special properties:


One of them is svn:eol-stype which you will want to set to "native".
You'll have to set it on all the files you want it to occur on, and
then next time you update after commiting the property, all the
platforms will get the right line ending. You can automate this for
future files added to the repository by configuring auto-props in your
.svn/config file (or maybe it's ./svn/configuration). It's also
covered in the Properties section of the book.

Hope that helps.
