cvs server : cvs co -d ... not working (1.10.5 and 1.10.6)

cvs server : cvs co -d ... not working (1.10.5 and 1.10.6)

Post by Camhi Michel-Ang » Thu, 13 Jan 2000 04:00:00

With the ext method, using rsh, here's what happening :
With a local repository,
cvs co -d . dir
checks out the dir hierarchy in the current repository.

With the same repository accessed by remote shell
cvs co -d . dir
cvs server: existing repository /repository does not match
cvs server: ignoring module dir

Also, if I specify an absolute path to the -d option, it is ok with
repository and gives
cvs [server aborted]: absolute pathname `/users/fimatex/roth/tmp'
for server
with a remote repository.

The cvs version on the server is 1.10.6, is this bug known and fixed in
1.10.7 ? I also wonder if the client version matters while using rsh :
is it
the client that operates remotely on the repository, or the server that
executes remote orders from the client??

1. CVS 1.10.5 and 1.10.6

Have a couple of interesting problems I was wondering if anyone else may
have run into.

I upgraded to cvs 1.10.6 (Linux 2.2.9 server and client).  No longer able to
do cvs login (al other commands seem to work).  After prompting for the
password, the connection just seems to hang indefinitely.

So ... I downgraded to 1.10.5 and seems to be working fine in most cases.
However, from time to time, I see the following.

C:\work>cvs update
cannot change permissions on temporary directory
Operation not permitted

Anyone else seen something like this?  Just started when I went from 1.10.3
to 1.10.5
