The "\ No newline at end of file" is simply an information message from
SVN.  This can happen on any operating system and is not a problem.

Here's an overview of the steps to take when adding a new non-binary file:

1) Make sure the file uses your OS's native line endings.  If you get
a file from elsewhere (email, issue tracker, etc) you may have to
convert it with dos2unix or unix2dos.  SVN will report an error if there
is a mixture of line endings used in a single file.

2) "svn add myfile"

3) "svn propset svn:eol-style native myfile" unless you've configured
svn to do so automatically.

4) Verify the property is set.  "svn propget svn:eol-style myfile"
should print "native".

5) "svn commit -m "message" myfile"
