Eclipse 3.0.1: Spurious error message when creating CVS patch from Eclipse [message #291415] Thu, 15 September 2005 07:34 Go to next message

Hi there,

We're getting what seems to be false errors when creating a patch from
within Eclipse 3.0.1.

The patch seems to be complete, but the following error message is
displayed the end of the log (one needs to enable show CVS output in
console view option to actually seethe error message)

The server reported an error while performing the "cvs diff" command which
may only indicate that a difference exists. (took 0:02.674)
Error: The server did not provide any additional information.

A quick search in the bugzilla database gives the bug #17166
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=17166) but that doesn't
help much about the actual error and its meaning.

Any clue? Should this error be ignored? If not, how can we fix either CVS
or Eclipse so that the error is not reported?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
Olivier.

What server are you using? And what's the version of CVS on that server?

I had a problem with Mac OS X's default CVS implementation, and things were generally screwy until I installed a newer version via http://fink.sourceforge.net

The CVS server is hosted on a White Box Linux 3.0 (similar to RHEL 3).

The CVS version is 1.11.2

I tried with Eclipse 3.1 and the output log gives:

RESULT> Status ERROR: org.eclipse.team.cvs.core code=-10 The server reported
an error while performing the "cvs diff" command which may only indicate that
a difference exists. null children=[Status ERROR: org.eclipse.team.cvs.core
code=-10 The server did not provide any additional information. null]

My take is that this error is harmless (the message shown in Eclipse 3.1
seems to make that clear, and is definitely an improvement over Eclipse
3.0), but noone is noticing it because it's only shown in the detailed log.

This is not an error. The command line version "cvs diff" behaves
similarly; a return value of 0 is used to indicate no differences while a
value != 0 is used to indicate differences. This is completely normal
behavior because Eclipse CVS mimics the command line version's behavior.
And btw, you see this only when looking at the cvs console - you don't see
any error somewhere else.
