Re: Re: Out of Date Error

I have tried svn up (many times). I am getting a different error
message (sorry if I did not catch this last time). You see I have a
file that used to be revision controlled and now I need it to be
revision controlled again.
This is what I do:
svn up; works ok, does not restore the file in quesion because it is
not (any longer) revision controlled
svn status; shows the file that I will be adding with the '?' which
means that it is not revision controlled.
svn add 'file_in_quesion'; this works ok so far
snv commit; problems!
Adding 'file_in_question'
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: File already exists: filesystem '/home/pauld/svn/db', transaction
'23', path '/trunk/file_in_question'
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: '/home/pauld/work/svn-commit.tmp'

I hope this is more clear. I think perhaps I have confused people by
not noticing the change in error message (sorry).

Anyway, does anyone have any ideas? I'm googling the answer, but not
much seems to be coming up.
