Tony, I just updated a semi-test cvs server I have (where I keep the CVSMailer and ViewCvs installer sources) to 188.8.131.523. After checking stuff a bit I also tried the ViewCvs installation that is active on this server. It seems like it is OK to browse modules thta have been committed when the server was still 2.0.38 (the level before this). But now I have trouble opening a module folder that i have committed the cvsnt binaries into using build 1863 as the server. (Yes, I am versioning the Inno builds I do for cvsnt...) This is the ViewCvs output I get in this case: Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Programs\ViewCvs\lib\viewcvs.py", line 3279, in main request.run_viewcvs() File "C:\Programs\ViewCvs\lib\viewcvs.py", line 333, in run_viewcvs self.view_func(self) File "C:\Programs\ViewCvs\lib\viewcvs.py", line 1388, in view_directory request.repos.dirlogs(request.path_parts, file_data, options) File "C:\Programs\ViewCvs\lib\vclib\bincvs\__init__.py", line 182, in dirlogs alltags = _get_logs(self, dirpath, entries, tag, subdirs) File "C:\Programs\ViewCvs\lib\vclib\bincvs\__init__.py", line 839, in _get_logs raise vclib.Error('Rlog output ended early. Expected RCS file "%s"' Error: Rlog output ended early. Expected RCS file "C:\cvsrepo\pc\CVSNT\cvsbin\co.exe,v" It looks like when ViewCvs wants to expand the contents of the folder I am opening it breaks. The ViewCvs I have is the latest as of Dec 2004 and uses the cvsnt cvs binary as the rcs parser. Note that I can go one level down by typing in the address in FireFox like this: http://antares/ViewCvs/viewcvs.cgi/pc/CVSNT/cvsbin/Keep/ Then it properly displays the SetAcl.exe that is stored there. The difference is that I just made a commit of the binaries for cvsnt build 1863 and they go to the cvsbin folder, so now the RCS files have been modified by cvs 184.108.40.2063 and the rcs parser gives up... /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
