I use CVS with cygwin a long time ago, but after a recent updte it stoped
working. I'm using pserver auth and the cygwin is installed with *DOS*
When I try to do something with cvs -1.11.17- (cvs up, cvs diff, etc..)
": no such repository"
Normally if I close cygwin, run the setup again (without installing
anything) and opening cygwin again fixes the problem.
If I do a fresh checkout, it will checkout the files with *unix*
file-endings, which isn't what I asked for..
Does anyone knows whats the problem here? I think it might be cause of
release of the lastest dll version. (I update cygwin often..)
Seems like you have encountered fancy EOL problem. To be safe use unix
line-endings since CVS is pretty picky about those.
And of course if you want to use DOS type line endings, use real win32
version of CVS.
It had always worked, so there might be some change in the code that caused
Anyway, the files in the cvs server use the unix EOL, but on my pc they use
the win EOL. But cvs used to handle this for me..
I've encountered numerous problems with CVS due the line-endings... Any
decent text editor should be handle both CR+LF or LF/CR only line-endings
and preserving existing ones... If yours doesn't it's time to upgrade...
I have vim, but I still like to use notepad, which only works with \r\n...
Is there anything I can do to help solving this problem ASAP?
