svn compare with branch in 7.0

When I right click on a file and select Subversion / Compare with
Branch..., I get a error dialog that says:

Error retrieving branch configuration: svn: '/home/cory/proj' is not a
working copy
svn: Cannot read from to '/home/cory/proj/.svn/format': path refers to
directory or read access is denied

Two problems:
1. "Cannot read from to" doesn't make sense :)
2. There is no /home/cory/proj/.svn directory on my machine (and thus no
format file in that directory). What should be in that file?

I don't know if it matters, but this is a project that was started in
version 6.

Thanks,
Cory

Hello Cory,

Where exactly is your project located, and what is the Subversion URL corresponding
to the project directory?

The iml, ipr, and iws files are in /home/cory/proj. The actual files for
the project are under that directory- /home/cory/proj/code. There is a
/home/cory/proj/code/.svn/format file there.

Is there some place for me to tell IDEA that it should be looking in the
code directory for .svn/format?

Ah- I think I see what you're getting at now.

My project is a multi-module project. The Project Settings dialog says
the content root is at /home/cory/proj and under that I have the modules
code, test, docs, etc...

Should I remove my top most content root (the umbrella one) and add
individual content roots for each module?

Changing the content root settings didn't help.

Next I tried going into the Version Control dialog from the settings
panel. Here I added entries for each module. Now I am able to select a
branch for comparison, but then I get:

Couldn't find repository location for file
'/home/cory/proj/code/src/com/foo/bar.java' under branch
'svn+ssh://cory@svn.example.com/svn/branches/rel_1_branch'

With my repo viewer, I can see that
/branches/rel_1_branch/code/src/com/foo/bar.java does exist.

Any advice on what I should try next?

Thanks,
Cory
