Hi, I have some binaries on a repository that I monthly clean-up removing revisions between tags, I use the command: cvs admin -o Begin:End I recently discovered that the binaries are not correctly patched anymore since I posted them with the -kB option instead of -kb, so I made a few tests: Here is the configuration with my tests Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2260 (client/server) Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 (client/server) - FilePostedUsing-kB ==> cvs -z9 -w admin -o 1.5 -- "FilePostedUsing-kB" (in directory C:\Dev_CdS\TestsCVSNT\) RCS file: /services/Repository_CVS/CelluleGC/TestsCVSNT/FilePostedUsing-kB.xls,v cvs admin: inflate: invalid distance too far back cvs [admin aborted]: reading from server: Input/output error - FilePostedUsing-kb ==> Ok with binaries removal and no problem to get back old posts before the deleted revisions. Is there any problem with the new algorithm to compress binaries? For instance on my production repository here is my configuration: Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.51d (client/server) Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.26 (client/server) I manage to remove revisions in both case (-kb end -kB) but the -kB operation render old revision unpatchable: When I try to get an old revision before some deleted ones here is what I get: cvs [server aborted]: Binary patch failed Any help would be welcome, Regards, Fabrice.
