RE: CVS on VMS mailing list ?
Mon, 7 Jan 2002 18:41:20 -0000
I would be interested in a VMS CVS group.
Here is some background on what I am doing. I use CVS 1.11.1p1 on all
platforms. I have CVS client running on DEC OpenVMS V7.2-1. I use pserver.
I have CVS running on DEC ALPHA running OSF1 V4.0, SGI running IRIX64 6.5,
and IBM AIX. I have CVS repositories on OSF1 and IRIX64. The VMS CVS client
is using the OSF1 CVS server.
I use CMS on some VMS processors, however, a recent project did not purchase
CMS so I am using CVS.
I have extensive work with SCCS, RCS, CMVision, CMS, and CVS. I have
converted all our CMVision projects to CVS. I greatly prefer UNIX over VMS.
However, I have one VMS project using CVS.
Current problems I have encountered with the VMS CVS port include:
cvs export and checkout error off after handling about 250 files and
A work around is to repeat the command until all files are processed. I
believe this has been explained to be a problem with the VMS rename program.
I would be interested in a fix for this.
I learned that a module name cannot start with "d" or "D". For example, I
did an import creating a repository with a module name of dips (a Government
acronym). The import ran great. I could do rlog and rannotate commands
without any problems. But if I tried to do a checkout or export I got a
"could not chdir" error.
DIPSD->cvs checkout dips/ssies_gdas/apga/apga.for
cvs [checkout aborted]: could not chdir to dips/ssies_gdas/apga: invalid
This was strange because I have other modules that work fine. I finally
renamed the module and the "could not chdir" problem vanished.
On the server side, I did a "mv $CVSROOT/dips $CVSROOT/vms_dips" and now
checkout and export both work.
I believe CVS might be seeing the starting d in the module name as a "d"
option on the checkout and export command. If this is true there may be
other options on other cvs commands that could present a problem.
Please let me know if a VMS group is formed.
Thanks, Dale Miller

Subject: CVS on VMS mailing list ?
I'm writing you this because I see from browsing info-cvs and bug-cvs
that you are all developing or using cvs client on VMS, with varying
degrees of success.
Recently I have started doing the same, using CVS 1.11 (?p1? - sorry
I'm at home right now & my VMS box is at work) with patches obtained
from the net. Would you be interested in forming a CVS on VMS mailing
list to discuss issues surrounding this port ? If mail.gnu.org can't
provide such, I could.
Please let me know if you're interested in a vms specific forum for
discussions of CVS.
p.s. are patches better sent to info-cvs, bug-cvs or some other place ?
p.p.s. which forum to ask questions about flow of control & logic in
the code ?
