I think I've found a "bug" in cvsnt; Here is my environment: CVSNT v184.108.40.206 (Build 57h) Italian Windows 2k (latest SP installed: Italian SP3) GMT+1 + Daylight saving The bug presents only when I checkout to a local repository mounted with "samba". - When I checkout with the command "cvs.exe -q checkout -P webknowler" to a local win2k ntfs directory everything works fine while checking-out to a samba share show all the files as "modified". - If I checkout locally (local ntfs drive), then I copy the whole local sandbox to the samba share it works fine! - If I "update" the "modified checkout" on the share, the "update" fixes the whole tree. Let's take in exam 1 file in my tree after a checkout on the samba share: the file is: /build/build.sh Looking at the file properties from windows I find: - Creation time: 24 sep 2002, 11.45.54 - Last Write time: 24 sep 2002, 11.45.54 - Last Access time: 24 sep 2002, 14.26.23 in the Entries file I find: "/build.sh/1.2/Tue Sep 24 12:26:23 2002//" creationtime and last write differs from the time stored in the Entries file! After an "update" (cvs.exe -q update -d -P) Entries CORRECTLY reports: "/build.sh/1.2/Tue Sep 24 09:45:54 2002//" Looking at the file properties from windows I find: - Creation time: 24 sep 2002, 11.45.54 - Last Write time: 24 sep 2002, 11.45.54 - Last Access time: 24 sep 2002, 14.39.15 That means same data as before! (access time is obviously newer) It seems "checkout" on the samba share has problems that "update" does not have: so I think this is a problem with cvs and not with samba. It could be this is a problem in both product, but it can be fixed by cvsnt if the checkout "timestamp handling" methods worked like the "update" ones. Am I right? Thanks, -b-
