Hi I'm not on the mailing list so please CC me ... thanks.
I'm setting up a development group's environment in what I expect will
be a increasingly common fashion:
1 central SUN box holds the JAVA source code in CVS
Every developer (group dev) as a Unix login account (thus a $HOME)
Every developer has MS (W2K) desktop
Every developer maps $HOME to W:
Thus if the log onto unix:
Private source is in $HOME/src Public source is
Private classes is in $HOME/classes Public class is
If they stick to the PC:
Private source is in W:/src Public source is X:/src
Private classes is in W:/classes Public class is X:/classes
Thanks to samba.
So now on my PC I do:
cvs checkout ....
And all is fine, I can work OK on the PC.
Now I got the UNIX account and have:
CVSROOT=/user/cvsroot export CVSROOT
This fails with 'used a null password ... etc.' The reason? It's using:
Which is what it finds in CVS/root in the CWD. But if I 'fix' this to
the PCs won't work.
If I use cvs checkout -d /user/cvsroot it OK, but 1: that's a pain and
2: I aint really doing this it's
being done in the background by emacs.
Any hints on the best way to do this?
As a BTW: I had a lot of grief with the cygnus cvs.exx and forte, the
gnu wincvs cvs.exe is OK ... thought you
might like to know that :-)
