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.


If this is related to your order of CVS Suite please contact CVS Suite
support as described in the eBook (about page 12 I think).

The eBook also contains comprehensive installation instructions and the
Customer area has the Intel Mac Native downloads (MacCVSX always runs in
Rosetta unfortunately).

NOTE: The :local: protocol you are using is for engineering use only
(and for creating repositories) please set up a local server as
described in the eBook, this will resolve the lock error you are seeing.

Subject: [cvsnt] (no subject)

I just installed cvsnt on Mac OS X 104.9. I'm running on an Intel Mac  
but the cvsnt is the PowerPC version running under Rosetta.

Running MacCvsX and attempting to import a module, I see the log  
messages below

Can anyone give me a clue what the message means about case  
insensitive locks no longer supported.

Also when MacCvxX starts it complains that there is no module named  
cvsgui.MacroRegistry. What does that mean?

Appreciate any help anyone can provide,
