Re: cvs problem

This occurs when the existing file is not under CVS management.
cvs will not overwrite it if it is not already managed by cvs.
Either the directory does not have a CVS/ subdirectory, or the
CVS/Entries file does not list the file/dir in question (that is how
cvs knows that a file or directory is under cvs management).
This type of situation usually occurs when you CP things manually
or if you PATCH something which creates a new file or directory
rather then just modifying existing files.
the things you wrote seem to imply that there is a src directory before
the failure (which isn't because I moved the one from the first
checkout). Or I didn't understand you. :)
The sequence of events is:
1) cvs checkout src <=== Successful
2) mv src src.old
3) cvs checkout src <=== Fails
We could reproduce the problem on a friend's machine as well. Both
systems were built in the last two days.
