cvs lock ..
Thu, 7 Oct 2004 14:36:28 +0530
I am facing a strange behavior related to any of the cvs operation (co /
update / rtag) on a repository some time.
The cvs oparation stops (say a tag task) and waits for the lock.
It gives a message "waiting for <sys_user>'s lock at <CVS_File_Path>"
The tag process stucks in-between till that (the stale lock - generally a
#cvs.rfl* type) is removed manually.
Though I can control this at a given point of time by searching an old one
by running a script, but its not a reliable search as we cannot distinguish
between a real and a *stale* lock file.
How by other means - this can be checked so that the tagging doesnt hinders
and if the code-base size is having good number of files, then it matters a
This linux sandbox is having cvs 1.11.11 as of now.
Any inputs----Thanks in advance.
