Simon, The "cvs log" command reads the entire RCS file on the server, wheras "cvs checkout" only reads part(s) of the file. If there is corruption in the RCS file then "cvs log" will abort but "cvs checkout" will not necessarily fail (unless you try and checkout the broken revision, or a revision dependant on the broken revision). If the RCS files are corrupted, upgrading to CVSNT will not help. You can upgrade to CVSNT by simply installing CVSNT on the server - CVSNT will read a CVS repository (but once you commit a change to the CVSNT server the RCS files now contain information that is not compatible with CVS - so you cannot go back - it's a one way upgrade).

So basically it is an improved version of CVS? If I upgrade the server to CVSNT, my repositories will be intact? Can this problem be caused because the client and the server are not the same? I can checkout the code without problems in Eclipse. And how would I check RCS files for corruption? Thanks!

I recommend you check the server RCS files for corruption then upgrade the linux server to the linux version of CVSNT 2.5.03.2382. Regards, Arthur
