Hi gang, I have been trying to get Eclipse to work with our cvsnt server and have hit a wall. I was wondering if anyone out there in cvsnt land might have some input (especially maybe Tony or Arthur). I dumbed our whole setup down to the following specs: cvsnt2.5.03.2382 (server), linux Redhat EL4, with windows clients running Eclipse 3.3. We are connecting with pserver. I also have the cvsnt server configured to emulate the old cvs functionality (respond as cvs 1.11 and the -n update bug), although these compatibility options seem to not make a difference at all. Ok, so here's the problem. If I connect and try to browse the repository using Eclipse's browser (perspectives or otherwise), I get the following error: Resource CVSROOT/ is not a child of folder The part that says "CVSROOT" is variable. It seems to get stuck trying to recurse the directory structure (in the case, seemingly getting stuck trying to get a directory listing of the CVSROOT folder, but could be any folder I put in the module fields). This also happens if I try to check out any module that has subfolders. The interesting thing to me though, is that if I try this with the exact same setup except with the server running on windows instead of linux, it seems to work fine. That's why I'm posting here instead of the Eclipse list. What is different between cvsnt on linux and cvsnt on windows that might cause this sort of behavior? Thanks a lot! Brian
