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.

I upgraded cvsnt from 2.0.58d to on redhat 9 and noticed that
viewcvs broke in the process. Apparently, viewcvs defaults to using a
command like "cvs rcsfile ..." for rcs related stuff on cvsnt. My install
didn't have an rcs client installed on it during the upgrade, but afterward
I had to install an rcs client (from
http://www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/trinkle/RCS/) and point viewcvs's config at
it. This fixed everything.

Just an FYI...

I thought they'd changed to use the client/server interface at some

If not maybe it's just the rcs stuff that needs some work.
