When I'm trying to <strong>change the branch where I am</strong>, I'm getting this error everytime:
# Just check in which branch I am $ hg branch django1.6 $ hg update --clean default abandon: Unlinking directory not permitted: 'D:\Projects\abc\abc'
abc is the project name, replace for simplicity here). Since it's a Django project, named
abc, I have a subfolder
abc that I have created in the
django1.6 branch. This folder <strong>doesn't exist yet in the default branch</strong>, so if I'm changing the branch, the folder has to be deleted in theory<br />
When I check the properties, I see the folder is in read-only mode, so in cygwin I
chmod the folder and try again...
$ chmod -R 0777 hstareal/ $ hg update --clean default abandon: Unlinking directory not permitted: 'D:\Projects\abc\abc' $ hg update --clean another-already-existing-branch abandon: Unlinking directory not permitted: 'D:\Projects\abc\abc'
For information, I can create a branch and get back to
django1.6 without problems:
$ hg branch test marked working directory as branch test (branches are permanent and global, did you want a bookmark?) $ hg update --clean django1.6 0 files updated, 0 files merged, 0 files removed, 0 files unresolved
Does anyone see where the problem is? I'm sure it's something related to cygwin, but I can't see why.Answer1:
The single workaround I found for the moment is to delete the folder <em>by hand</em> and then update the branch.
$ rm -rf abc/ $ hg update --clean default 27 files updated, 0 files merged, 4 files removed, 0 files unresolved
Really dirty but at least it works... I'm still listening to better suggestions :)
