Hi! I'm using CVSNT 188.8.131.52 (Build 62) and have encountered a weird problem with other clients. It manifests itself with error messages like: > cvs server: failed to create lock directory for `c:/cvsroot/c:/cvsroot/prj1' > (c:/cvsroot/c:/cvsroot/prj1/#cvs.lock): Invalid argument I can duplicate this problem with the usual UNIX cvs (1.10 `Halibut') and with MacCVS Pro, which was rewritten from scratch, and is totally different from it. Still, everything is OK when using cvsnt command-line client. Here are the details of what I'm doing. I have a CVSNT 184.108.40.206 (Build 62) server on Windows 2000, with a repository root "c:/cvsroot". No repository prefix has been set. When I checkout project prj1 with a UNIX client: > cvs -d :pserver:user at 220.127.116.11:c:/cvsroot checkout prj1 I get a full path in CVS/Repository file: > c:/cvsroot/prj1 So, and attempt to make a commit gives the quoted error message. But with CVSNT's command-line client and the same command, the CVS\Repository file contains just > prj1 If I manually delete the full path from the CVS/Repository, everything seems to work OK, but that's a real pain :(. Is it something that I'm doing wrong, or a bug in CVSNT? - WBR, Alexey Proskuryakov.
