I'm using CVSNT on a particular project, with WinCVS and Tortoise CVS
clients without any problem (great tool indeed)!
Now I'm trying to setup web access using cvsweb, using the IIS 4.0 installed
in the CVSNT server PC (NT 4.0 WKST SP6a)
I have read all the readmes and the devguy site, but still can't manage to
make it work... I can see the repositories, choose one and see the modules
in there, but when I select a module I get the good old
Error: Failed to spawn GNU rlog on
for all the files belonging to the module. RLOG is in the machine path. IWAM
and IUSR users are explicitly added with 'full control' permissions on the
repositories (I have 'everyone' 'full control' on all the PC as this is only
a test pole for now, I want to secure it later...). If I call RLOG manually
for one of the repository files it works well...
I've tried to dig a bit on CVSWEB.CGI and found that the problem is in the
function getDirLogs, it never enter in 'while(<fh>)', it seems it has no
output from RLOG, but the open statement doesn't fail!

Anyone has some tips about this? I'm now completely lost... I had managed in
the past to make this work using an Apache server (also on NT), but with
different version of CVSNT and on a different PC...

Thanks for any help!
