    Commit failed (details follow):

    I am using Versions on a Mac, but I get an error on commut using svnx also. I have seen people getting similar errors here on the forums in the past, but I haven’t see and resolution.

  • I’m having this issue too and have been trying for well over a week to get some assistance on it with no luck. Any help is appreciated.

    I get the same error. Did you solve your problem?

    I’m working on a Mac too. I’ve just tried it on Linux over ssh and it worked. So the problem seems to be mac specific.

    Few minutes later: I’ve just solved it. You have to remove ~/.subversion. After that you’re able to commit with svn ci –username <name> –password <pass> -m “message”



    I am having the same problem. OSX.
    @mcosx are you using the command line? or svnX? I am using terminal and get the same error as described by adrian3. Where exactly is the “~/.subversion.”? I would like to get this working with svnX or in the terminal.

    thanks in advance.
