Re: "it is in the way" problem

I've narrow it down and it looks like this is the problem. There is a
directory that was added later and isn't in the working copy, when I do the
update I get all the "it is in the way" errors, everytime. If I manually add
the directory to the CVS\Entries file, it works fine.

Anyone have any ideas how to have CVS do this automatically? I've tried
the -d option with no success.

Thanks for all the replies,

Jason A.

I believe this error occurs when/if you have deleted/moved etc some of the
CVS files that are created at checkout. It helps to delete that
directory/module and checkout again. Subsequent update commands will not
have the error.

I have my CVS repository all setup and working but occasionally I am seeing
some really strange errors. Every once in a while when doing an update I get
a whole bunch of "move away file X, it is in the way" errors. This seems to
happen quite randomly and I haven't been able to pin it down. Anybody ever
experienced something like this? Heres the CVS command I'm using to update
my working copy: cvs -d :ext:address@hidden:/repository -z3 up -d -I ! -I CVS
Any help is appreciated, Jason A.
