Re: config file with cygwin

We had some problems with cygwin subversion.

We fixed them by:
1. uninstalling svn & various 'helpers' by using cygwin's setup.
2. going to c:\cygwin\bin\ and deleting svn*.exe and most of the
*svn*.dll (cygwin's setup didn't delete them)
3. then installing the 'normal' Windows version of Subversion, and
also TortoiseSVN.
4. after log-out (to set up environment variables) cygwin works OK
with the Windows install of Subversion. Screen capture from my
cygwin/bash prompt is:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
alacis@AIS-PC95 ~
$ which svn
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Subversion/bin/svn

alacis@AIS-PC95 ~
$
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
It *used* to be /usr/bin/svn, which was cygwin's version.

what I do to get it to ignore .obj files, I can still add .obj files, 
using Cygwin terminals. I've put a config file with a global-ignore tag in 
Cygwin's /etc/subversion directory and in my Cygwin 
$HOME/.subversion/config. I've tried changing it for straight Windows 
(TortoiseSVN), but let's start with Cygwin. It seems like I have 
everything done according to the doc, but no luck. I must be missing 
something. Can anyone help?

The cygwin version of Subversion looks for the config file in
$HOME/.subversion whereas the Windows version looks for it in
%APPDATA%\Subversion so please ensure that you are editing the
right file. May be you want to try the --config-dir option to
explicitly set the config dir.
Another thing to know is that the global-ignores option only
prevents the files from being shown by 'svn status'. You are
still able to add such a file with 'svn add'. And if the file
is already committed to the repository it won't be ignored
either.
Please keep in mind that the global-ignores option is one for
the client (for the working copies) (as is the whole config
file). So it has nothing to do with which protocoll you are
accessing the repository.
Hope this helps.
