Could you please attach the output of the same command run with the `-t' option (`cvs -t checkout whatever')?

Also, if you know how to attach a debugger to the client and/or server process, a stack trace could be very helpful as well.

Hi All,
I am using cvs client on HP-Unix:
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.22 (client/server)
HP-UX B.11.11 U

when i checkout from cvs server, the cvs is creating an empty file as:
.new.sync with 0 bytes and hanging there with the following output:

bash-3.2# cvs update -d -P .
? .new.inmsync
cvs update: Updating .

There are no space problems, but cvs checkouts just hangs. I verified
on other machines it is working fine.

I uninstalled and installed cvs client again. But getting the same problem.

Thanks and Regards,

Vivek <vivekk>
