I am setting up a new laptop for my use at work and now I have fiddled with CVS. I installed the latest WinCvs and then pointed the alternate exe to my 57g CVSNT. I have copied the sandbox directories from my old PC to the new one (same location). The new PC is an XP Pro and the old is a W2000 Pro. This check returns exactly the same on both machines: cvs ver *****CVS exited normally with code 0***** Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 18.104.22.168 (Build 57g) (client/server) Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 22.214.171.124 (Build 57g) (client/server) When I issue the cvs ls command on the new machine I get this response: cvs ls -l Here it takes forever so I stop it. *****CVS stopped on user request !!! ***** Listing modules on server cvs [server aborted]: cannot stat directory D:/CVSTEMP/CVSLOCKS/g a module that consists of many directories # spread out over the entire source repository. : Bad address But if I do the exact same thing on the old PC I get this almost instantly: cvs ls -l *****CVS exited normally with code 0***** Listing modules on server BranchTest (directory) CVSROOT (directory) EDCell (directory) InfoView3R (directory) Offsets3Rdll (directory) PalletCheck (directory) RobServer (directory) WMAuto22 (directory) WMAuto23 (directory) WMRemote (directory) I also observed that when using the new PC, CVSNT created a subdir in the CVSTEMP dir but did no such thing in the old PC. There is also a subdir in CVSTEMP/CVSLOCKS named 'ut over the entire source repository'... What is going on here? I have tried changing root between ntserver and sspi back and forth using the TCL macro but it seems to have no effect. Best regards, Bo Berglund
