Hi All, I've checked the CVSNT newsgroup and FAQ and the Eclipse FAQ and newsgroup for the answer to the following questions with no success. Here's my scenario: Our environment is CVSNT Server (2.5.03.2382) on a RH Linux server with WinXP clients. Most clients connect using TortoiseCVS and WinCVS. I have a number of developers that want to use Eclipse to connect to the repository. After configuring my Eclipse installation and CVSNT client, I have tested checking out from CVSNT using Eclipse with a modicum of success. I can check out a module only if I specify the module's path relative to the repository location (i.e., mod-dir/module relative to /usr/local/cvs/cvs-repo). When browsing the CVSNT modules from Eclipse, I get the following error: Resource CVSROOT/ is not a child of folder In my /etc/PServer file on the server, Compat0_OldVersion=1 and Compat0_OldCheckout=1. Compat0_HideStatus is commented out. The way I understand this, I need to set Compat0_OldVersion=0, Compat0_OldCheckout=0 and possibly Compat0_HideStatus=0 in order to allow fully compatible access to my Eclipse users to access the repository. What will changing the value of these parameters do to my Tortoise and WinCVS users? What functionality will I lose/gain by changing these variables? Would it be better to set up a separate repository for these users instead of integrating their modules into the current repository? Paul D.
