Error using CVS. [message #111607] Wed, 29 October 2003 02:01 Go to next message

Hi,

I am unable to view the "diff" between my local file and the one in the
CVS repository. Eclipse always shows that the whole file has been
modified locally. I found an exception in the .log file. (see below).
From the stack trace it seems Eclipse is running the update command
with the -C option. But the CVS Repository version in use here is
1.10.5, which I believe does not allow this option.

What should I do to be able to view the "diff"? What can I do to have
Eclipse not use this option?

I am running Eclipse Version: 2.1.0 Build id: 200303272130 on Windows
2000. The CVS Repository is an Unix box.

thanks and regards
vinod.

I think you're out of luck with this. From the Eclipse FAQ:
< http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/~checkout~/platform -vcm-home/docs/online/cvs_features2.0/cvs-faq.html#server_1>

1.What server versions of CVS are supported by Eclipse?

In 3.0, Eclipse supports CVS version 1.11.1p1 or higher, running
on a Linux or UNIX server. Eclipse 2.1.2 and before does not work with
CVS versions
greater than 1.11.6 (see next point). Eclipse does not officially
support running CVSNT on a Windows server, but varied degrees of success
have been
achieved. In this case, CVSNT version 1.11.1.1 or higher must be
used. There have also been some problems reported with HPUX and Solaris
version
(see above).
