I can't remember this ever not working for me, but now it doesn't and it's frustrating as heck.
If i right-click a file in the Project browser and select CVS -> Create Tag and then in that dialog, click the "..." button next to Tag Name (to load a list of current tags)... it works.
But if I'm on a directory (any directory), I get an error dialog instead that says "Cannot load tags: Cannot find CVSROOT for file /home/fourier/projects/projectName"
How can I fix this?
Here's what my setup is, and what I'm trying specifically to do:
All my projects are under /home/fourier/projects/
I create one 'top' folder for each project, /home/fourier/projects/projectName
Under this directory I'll CVS checkout a project and that normally results in
/home/fourier/projects/projectName/projectName/ (sources, CVS folder, etc, etc, are at this level)
Then I create an IntelliJ project on top of this, such that the *.ipr and *.iws files are at /home/fourier/projects/projectName and the *.iml file is at /home/fourier/projects/projectName/projectName
So now my code is "ready", and what I want to do is tag the entire repository with a release tag. What I'm used to doing then, is right-clicking the "projectName/projectName" folder in the Project Explorer and "create tag.... ". This is what doesn't work, and while testing, I see it doesn't work for any folder, at any level.
This is at work, and I've recently received an upgraded desktop. I thought I had transferred all files over to the new system, but perhaps I've forgotten something? A lot of other CVS operations seem to work (updates, commits, etc).
