Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The script says the following:

DEFAULT echo "variable values are %s %V %v"

This does the same thing:

ALL echo "variable values are %s %V %v"

If I remove these lines so that loginfo is blank, I can add directories
again. I installed 2115 from rpms on redhat9. the commitinfo script is now
and always has been blank.

I noticed that the directories actually do end up on the server and in the
repository. But the client hangs during the process. To a user, it looks
like the process fails.

I just did a "cvs -ttt add testdir3" command. Here's the last few lines
before it hangs up on me:

08:34:12:   -> run loginfo trigger
08:34:12:   -> run_trigger()
08:34:12:   -> Call pre-loaded 'default_trigger.la'
08:34:12:   -> default_trigger: parse_info(CVSROOT/loginfo,,%<< Update of
%r/%p\nIn directory %H:%P\n\nLog Message:\n%m,sandbox/testdir3)
08:34:12:   -> Regexp match: DEFAULT - sandbox/testdir3
08:34:12:   -> parse_info_line: Line=echo "variable values are %s %V %v"
%<< Update of %r/%p\nIn directory %H:%P\n\nLog Message:\n%m

And now it's 10 minutes later and I still don't have my command prompt
back. If it works for you, I'd like to know what makes your setup different
from ours, because ours is definitely broken.

This definately works.. I did it yesterday...  plus I rely on loginfo
for commit tracking.

Check your script - maybe it's not handling the add directory case?
(which has to be special-cased within the script since it uses a
different command line).
