That's good enough for me! :)  Thank you very much for your help in tracking this down.

It works again using Windows XP + TortoiseCVS version 1.6.13.

Sorry..  that should be ``Should be fixed now.  Can anyone on Windows confirm this?'' ;)

We have figured out what the problem is and will be working on a fix shortly.

Wow this is long..

I have responded to the bug at cvsnt.org, with basically the same information I've already given here.

I will contact the FSF sysadmins to ask for their help in this.

Hi,

See answers at :
http://www.cvsnt.org/mantis/bug_view_page.php?bug_id=0000043

It looks like Savannah CVS server doesn't fulfill the capabilities its claims to support.

Cheers,

p.b.

I have been working with TortoiseCVS for months and had no problems and then a week or so ago
I started getting errors when I tried to update. I looked around and found this item.

I updated my TortoiseCVS to the unstable version today and then tried to do a cvs update and got
the following the errors shown below. I am not sure how to proceed - has anyone seen this before or does
nobody else have any problems. I can say that the newer version of TortoiseCVS still works with my own
repository on a linux box. It is just Savannah that gives me problems.

Hi,

Mmmh... from a recent Cygwin distribution.

C:\cygwin\bin>cvs -ver
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.6 (client/server)

However, I've just filled a bug in CVSNT :

I don't use CVSNT so I don't know how it differs from GNU CVS, but there should be a command line option that enables tracing (`-t' in GNU CVS) which might help us debug this.

Can you try a normal CVS operation with this option added and reply with that output?

I've had the same problem using CVSNT (from the command line), and another guy said to me it was happening for him with TortoiseCVS (which uses CVSNT).  Neither this other guy nor I did any change in our setup, or upgraded TortoiseCVS or CVSNT.  It just suddenly stopped working.
I was using CVSNT 2.0.41a, which is the newest stable release.
Perhaps some upgrade of the CVS server software is affecting CVSNT and not regular CVS? cvs.exe from Cygwin works fine.

Thu 10 Jun 2004 04:26:52 PM UTC, comment #4: 

This is still open.  And yes, the server software has been updated (to address recent security errata).

But, to my knowledge there are only three CVS issues in the support queue (this one, and two related to inproper usage).  If you could direct me to these numerous reports I'd be greatful.

Thu 10 Jun 2004 10:31:38 AM UTC, comment #3: 

I would reopen this as I am not convinced that it is a client problem, as numerous people have reported that their previously working cvs clients no longer work and they haven't changed their environments. Have you updated the CVS Server software on Savannah?

The "cvs.exe" delivered with TortoiseCVS version 1.6.13 seems to be the problem. So you can close this support request! Thanks!

I have tried checking out and updating both locally and remotely and have had no problems.  I think this is most likely a problem at your end (make sure your cvs client is up-to-date, etc).

If you continue to have ptoblems, please reply with the output from the above cvs command with the `-t' option added (which will provide trace output to aid in debugging this problem).
