Paul, I have only just started using Build 65 and have also had the problem. It appears that the STDERR output from rlog is the cause of the problem and I have fixed my installation by doing the following: In the file popen.py: Change the line: def popen(cmd, args, mode, capture_err=1): to read: def popen(cmd, args, mode, capture_err): In the file viewcvs.py: Change all the calls to popen.popen to have an additional parameter set to 1 except for the rlog call which is set to 0. e.g Change the line: rlog = popen.popen(os.path.normpath(os.path.join(cfg.general.rcs_path,'rlog')), chunk, 'rt') to read: rlog = popen.popen(os.path.normpath(os.path.join(cfg.general.rcs_path,'rlog')), chunk, 'rt', 0) But change: fp = popen.popen(os.path.join(cfg.general.rcs_path, 'co'), (rev_flag, full_name), 'rb') to read: fp = popen.popen(os.path.join(cfg.general.rcs_path, 'co'), (rev_flag, full_name), 'rb',1) This then ignores the STDERR stuff from rlog and everything then works. However, if rlog returns anything else on STDERR then you wont know about it. In the end, the code needs to cater for the errors and not just ignore it but this solution is OK for me.

I committed a test file just fine, except that now ViewCvs won't touch this file. If I click a file that I have not yet committed changes to all is well and the file displays and I can diff it etc. But if I do the same on this newly committed file ViewCvs throws an error and displays this: Exception Python Messages: Traceback (most recent call last): File "c:\programs\viewcvs\lib/viewcvs.py", line 2710, in main view_log(request) File "c:\programs\viewcvs\lib/viewcvs.py", line 1774, in view_log show_revs, rev_map, rev_order, taginfo, rev2tag, \ File "c:\programs\viewcvs\lib/viewcvs.py", line 1534, in read_log idx = string.rfind(head, '.')

Is there anyone with any ideas on why it happened and how to solve this? Is it only present in the CVSNT Daily Snapshot or is this something permanent? Is there a viewcvs.py fix that covers this problem?
