Re: cvs [log aborted]: linefeed expected in file.c,v

Another related question. It seems like the files ARE getting corrupted as they are being checked in. This seems to happen very frequently and am pretty concerned about finding a real solution. I do notice that our linux systems are running cvs version 1.10.7 and the solaris systems are running cvs version 1.9. Does this have any thing to do with the problem? In the past when we were only developing on solaris, we never
had any problems. Our repository is on solaris.

After looking more closely into the corrupted files, it seems like sometimes there are null characters(a simple vi edit and close fixes it). Sometimes, the delete, append syntax is not correct in the file(fortunately, I have been able to figure
out the fix most of the time).

Please advice ASAP. Should I just update all the cvs versions to 1.10.7? Will there be any issues with the repositories being compatible? Or should I use a downgraded version for the linux systems to be at the same level
as the solaris systems?

  Thanks much for the feedback.

Your repository has been corrupted.

Most likely the problem is in one of the change texts; if you're not
intimately familiar with the RCS file format, you're unlikely to be able
to fix it.  I'd suggest looking for uncorrupted backup copies of the
files.  (If you'd like to put the file someplace where I can get to it
or mail it to me, I can give you a more detailed explanation of the
problem, but it probably won't be easy to fix.)
