Dear Charles Wilson,

I'm a cygwin user and I have problems using CVS. I'm trying to use the following command fron cygwin:

> cvs -d co -D 8/25/2004 gcc

The result is

' from cvs serverning: unrecognized response`ok

and then the program hangs.

The very same command works smoothly in a SGI workstation.

In both machines I have

setenv CVS_RSH ssh

I'm sorry, but I can't reproduce this. I've tried your exact command, with 'export CVS_RSH=ssh' (I use bash, not a csh-ish shell). I've done it in a working directory which is mounted in binary (unix) mode, and in one which is mounted in text (DOS) mode. In both cases, it works without error.

Now, that's started from a standstill (no previous checkout).

I note that when I do this 'beginning' checkout from a text mode working directory, the following files have '^M' endings:


That might be a bad thing -- since it would tend to mess up future 'update' checkouts (and cvs diffs, and ...) ***IF*** cvs is opening those files for READ in binary mode (that is, not translating the '^M's away).

But it doesn't.

I mean, cvs opens those files in the appropriate mode, stripping away the '^M's as far as I can tell. I'm going to need more information.

"Run 'cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out' and include that file as an
attachment in your report.  Please do not compress or otherwise encode
the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be
easily viewed."
