If you want Subversion to change the line endings (which you've
requested by setting svn:eol-style) then the file must already have
consistent line endings (all LF, or all CRLF, or all CR) but your
file has a mix of line ending styles. You need to either make the
line endings in the file consistent, or remove the svn:eol-style
