I had already looked at your post and there is nothing in it that I
can see could help me...
My situation is a bit different from yours:
1) I had everything up and running fine for everything with build 57j,
I can use ViewCvs to browse the modules and look at the files etc.
2) Then I switched to CVSNT build 68 and committed a change to one
single file. ViewCvs is now showing errors for this file only.
3) The problem is not with permissions etc because that would hit
*everything*, in my case there is one single file that cannot be
diffed or viewed. But I can still browse the module and view the other
nonchanged files.
4) I am not using a share as repository, I have a local drive.
5) If I manually edit out the three extra lines in the RCS file that
CVSNT put there, then everything is back to normal.
So I need a viewcvs or CVSNT fix that addresses the inability to
handle the extra info in the RCS file without crashing.
Here are revision examples from two files:
First the good file (displays just fine and was last written by CVSNT
build 57j):
date 2002.; author bosse; state Exp;
next 1.1;
Then the bad file written by CVSNT build 68:
date 2003.; author bosse; state Exp;
next 1.11;
permissions 666;
commitid 1583e2f24603862;
kopt kv;
The last three lines is extra info that breaks viewcvs. If removed
then everything is OK again.
