svn: E165001: svn:eol-style related error

When we add a new file to svn and if this file type has not been configed for eol-style property, this error will returned when you try to commit.

How to fix it:

All we need to do is set eol-style property for this file type.

1) IDE: open the new added file and right click and select 'Subversion' then 'Set Property'.

2) edit your local subversion dir and edit the config file.
 cd ~/.subversion  
 open config and go to the bottom  
 add the following content (e.g. for .java file)  
 *.java = svn:eol-style=native  

Done.
