Hi, I have both Vista and linux (Ubuntu 7.10) installed on my machine (and I have to boot sometimes on one OS and sometimes on the other). The main repository I use is on a remote unix machine, which I access through ssh. On the server side, cvs version is 1.11.17. My collection of CVS-managed files (sandboxes) is located on the windows partition. I have CVSNT (the most recent stable version) and tortoiseCVS installed on Windows. Under Ubuntu, I have a symbolic link pointing to my windows directory, so that I don't duplicate copies of my files. I also have cvsnt (2.2.5.03.Build 2382) installed and (so far) I use the good old command line on Ubuntu. Checking out/Updating/committing from scratch under linux is no problem. My problem is when I access (from Ubuntu) a cvs-managed directory created under windows: I get the password prompt, but then cvs(nt) tells me: Protocol error: 'Directory' missing I understand that EOL or encoding issues make it difficult to share sandboxes between linux and windows.But it would be good not to have to duplicate sandboxes and keep them only on one partition? Is there any way to do this? Cheers, St.
