Nope... no .cvsrc files here, there, or anywhere where else. Its weird becaue I do the checkout with the two -j's, get no conflicts, then the commit fails as indicated above... at it always fails with the content of the -m that I specify on the command line.. Example, if I do # cvs commit -m "roobarb and custard" Then I get : [snip] cvs commit: Examining prj/wxWidgets/wxPython/wxversion cvs server: nothing known about `-m' cvs server: nothing known about `roobarb and custard' cvs server: nothing known about `--' cvs server: Examining prj [snip] But, and this is where it gets really fun, if I do # cvs commit -m "roobarb and custard" * Then it darn well works!!! So, reading between the lines, and after drinking several cups of coffee, the only thing I can think of is this: For some reason, cvs commit is thinking that my -m "blah" is actually a specification for the files to be committed. Any ideas as to what's going on/wrong? And finally: # cvs --help commit Usage: cvs commit [DnRlf] [-B bug | -b bug ] [-m msg | -F logfile] files... Should that files... be [files...] since its an optional. Greetings from Luxembourg, David
