Hi, I am attempting to migrate an existing CVS repository from CVSNT 2.5.03on Windows to CVS 1.11.2 on Linux. Here are the steps that I took to do this migration: 1. zipped up the current CVS repository on Windows (c:\cvs\myproject\*) 2. ftp'd the file to the Linux host 3. unzipped the repository into the cvs root there (/opt/app/cvs/myproject) Everything appears to work fine with this approach, except for the binary files in my repository. If I check out a new copy of the repository, the binary files come back with CRLF's where they should only have LFs. This is causing considerable trouble with the .jar files in the repository. This, however, only appears to be a problem when connecting to the repository from a Windows client. If I checkout the files from a unix-based client, the CRLF translation doesn't happen. Has anyone had any success with this type of migration before? Any suggestions or ideas on things to try? Unfortunately, the destination Linux machine must run CVS 1.11.2, so changing it to run a flavor of CVSNT is not an option. Thanks, Kevin
