Unable to check out project from CVS (E -f update: New directory `cashWS' -- ignored)

Hi All,

I've just downloaded the communit edition of IntelliJ and am trying to check out a project from CVS but the projects from my cvs repository are not appearing in the "Check Out from CVS Repository".

After enabling logging, I see this in the file:


BEGIN AUTH REQUEST
/usr/dev/cvs

E -f update: New directory `CashWS' -- ignored
E -f update: New directory `ISFFundsTransfer' -- ignored



So, it can find my projects, but ignores them when listing.

Any idea what might be wrong?

Thanks
MJ.

That cvs output look slightly incorrect. Perhaps the cvs server is incorrectly configured. Instead of "E -f update: New directory `directoryname' -- ignored" it should say "E cvs update: New directory `directoryname' -- ignored".

Can you list the modules in the cvs repository from the command line? The following command should work for that:
cvs -d [cvsroot] rls
If that doesn't work you could try the instructions here:

If you can list the modules from the command line, which cvs version do you use?
(cvs -d [cvsroot] version)

Sorry for the duplicate reply.

I can list the projects with

cvs -d /usr/dev/cvs rls

And here is my cvs version

cvs -d /usr/dev/cvs version
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.12.13 (client/server)



Thanks for your help with this.



Just FYI, tortoise CVS and eclipse work fine connecting and listing from the repository.

Do I understand correctly you are using a local cvs repository?

It could also be possible your cvs server is not configured correctly like described (and linked to) here:

Hi Bas,

My cvs is not running locally. It runs on a server shared by many projects.

I don't control the cvs installation or configuration, so cannot change that.

Having said that, this has become not so urgent to us as the repository I'm working on is migrating to SVN this week. This will resolve this issue.

I'll not pursue this fix anymore.

Thanks for trying to help.
