RE: Problem with Entries file

Larry,

Thanks for the response.

The module is not listed in the modules file.

My CVS client does not seem to support the tracing option (i.e. cvs co -t
<module> fails as it does not like the -t).

The Entries.Log file looks like this :-

D

The Entries.Log file looks like this :-

A D/solaris-sparc////

One thing I have discovered is that the files appear ok (and cvs status
works) if I explicitly request a recursive checkout (cvs co -R <module>).
On the previous CVS repository I used (Solaris client/Solaris server) I
never had to do this.  Is there some kind of configuration parameter that
makes recursive checkout the default?

Thanks,

Matt

I cannot reproduce this problem.  Is your module just a plain directory,
or is it defined in the modules file?  If the latter, please show us the
definition.  Also, please run the checkout with tracing enabled (-t) and
show us the trace.  And please check for a CVS/Entries.Log file in
addition to CVS/Entries.
