How do I flush that cache? It's stored in the hidden "CVS" subdirectories of your existing sandbox, more specifically inside the File therein called "Root". Unless you use the -d option the CVSROOT that's stored there always has precedence over any other method of specifying a CVSROOT. Even -d only overrides ./CVS/Root for some commands, namely those that do not _require_ a sandbox (e.g. login, checkout, import, rtag, rlog, etc.). What you have to do in order to use an existing sandbox with a new CVSROOT is to change the contents of the ./CVS/Root files. See here for details: http://cvsgui.sf.net/newfaq.htm#change_cvsroot Hope this helps. -- Oliver ---- ------------------ JID: ogiesen at jabber.org ICQ: 18777742 (http://wwp.icq.com/18777742)
