I have Installed CVSNT 2.5.01 Build 1976 on Windows XP SP2 with no
firewall using a default installation options. Using the web guide at
http://cvsnt.org/wiki/InstallationTips as my reference, I have created
the folder D:\CVS as my repository through the CVSNT control panels.
Then, I have opened a command-line shell, and set the CVSROOT to a
local path D:\CVS, and my current path at C:\temp. I performed "CVS co
CVSROOT" which executed successfully. Then, I have tried to update the
repository after editing file cvswrappers, and I get the following error
"cvs [update aborted]: Failed to obtain lock on /.directory_history,v:
FAIL Lock not within repository". I have verified that Locking Server
Service is running through the control panel.
Is this a known issue? I am not sure how to proceed. I've not modified
any other options.
