There may also be a 2Gb limit on the ,v file in the repository.
You may want to try removing older versions of the file (there are 24?)
If you choose to do that; make sure that all references to the version
to be removed are removed first.

Hi Bernd,

Thanks for your help.

Here is the info:

We are trying to check-in a binary file of size 228MB. We have its
1.24 on original repository and 1.1 on test repository. Test repository
no data except the file we are trying and it is not identical to

I can see that the repository file size on original repository is 1.9
and on test repository, it is 228MB.

But we have the /tmp space only around 1 GB. So do we need to remove any
intermediate/obsolete revisions so that we can make the
whole repository file fit into CVS virtual memory?
