I am running cvs under Cygwin on XP and get the following message when
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot rename file CVS/Entries.Backup to
CVS/Entries: Permission denied
The checkout stops. If I resume it it seems continue from where it left off,
but the problem recurs.
The problem doesn't always occur when finishing checking out the first
directory. The amount of progress cvs makes before encountering the problem
If I manually try to mv the file, it works fine. The output for ls -al for
-rw-r--r-- 1 gjones mkgroup-l-d 3011 Aug 16 18:09
and for Entries:
-rw-r--r-- 1 gjones mkgroup-l-d 2964 Aug 16 18:09
(Yes, I know the mkgroup-l-d group is bogus. I fixed that once and still had
the problem, then I tried reinstalling Cygwin and haven't fixed it again.)
Cygwin version: 1.5.17-1, I think.
CVS version: 1.11.17.
