Hi all,

          I am trying to checkin a binary file to cvs. I am able to
add the same file but if i try to do a cvs commit i get this message

Add only has to place a marker (in the local sandbox).
commit actually has to process the file, on the server.

"cvs [commit aborted]: out of memory; can not reallocate 28128790
bytes" .
28128790 / (1024*1024)
26.8 MB.
Ouch, you have a very small machine??

        When i again tried to do cvs commit i got
        "cvs: hash.c:312: findnode:Assertion `key != ((void *)0)'
failed.cvs [commit aborted]: received abort signal".
         Is there a file size limit to checkin. If yes, what is the
maximim file size i can checkin?
         Does the file size limit also depends on the type of file u r
checking in ex: if binary file then maximum size limit:say x , if
ordinary file : say y etc.
          Please do help me by replying as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance

If you need to return to the list, a few useful values would be:
How much real ram on the server.
How much virtual memory available to the server.
How much "memory" is used on the server when cvs is not running.
How much free space in /tmp (of the server)
How much free disk space in the repository directory (i.e., $CVSROOT)
How big is the file you are dealing with.
How big is the file in the repository (if it ever made it there in the past).
Are you sure there is not a file in the Attic directory with the same name, which is already huge?

Also the following search, leads I think towards answers that may help:
BTW Larry Jones knows the guts of CVS, so trust his replies.
