The best place to ask programming/development questions, imo. UPDATE: stackoverflow is the *worst* place to *ask* questions (if your first question/comment doesn't get any up-rating/response, then u can't ask anymore questions--ridiculously unrealistic), but a great reference for finding answers.

eclipse svn cant commit file - at least one resource should be selected

i came across something weird when i was manually merging 2 projects (compare with > each other). i had copied a folder from Project A to Project B, then tried to commit the folder in Project B, but got the following message:

at least one resource should be selected



then when i deleted the folder and tried to commit the deletion instead (not knowing it wasn't in svn at all) i got the following message:

Some of selected resources were not added to version control.
Some of selected resources were not committed.
svn: Can't add '/home/me/workspaceJuno/projectB/testfolder/testfile.txt' to a parent directory scheduled for deletion

svn: Working copy '/home/me/workspaceJuno/
projectB/testfolder' locked



i finally figured out that the problem was that when i copy/pasted the testfolder inside eclipse, from Project A to Project B, it had copied the .svn folder inside testfolder as well, so eclipse thought it was already in svn in Project B. so when you copy folders inside eclipse from one project to another, you need to manually delete the .svn folder in a normal file browser, e.g. nautilus, then you will be able to commit the folder.
