cvs commit changing line separator

Answered

I'm not sure if this is a problem with intellij or cvs but I'm seeing something that started in 876 and is still present in 887. I'm thinking this might just be a configuration issue on my part.

cvs server is running on freebsd. Client is win2k. Files are stored with unix line separators. When Intellij saves files after making a change, the file is still stored locally with unix line separators. After doing a commit of this file however, the document is now stored locally with dos line separators. Doing a "Compare with Repository" from within Intellij shows the files are identical. Doing a "cvs diff file.java" from a shell shows the entire file is diff due to the mismatch in line separators. If i do a "cvs update -C file.java" I can get it back to unix line separators until next time it is commited.

Any ideas?

thanks,
Nathan

Seems, it is still happening (2017.3).

Or not... I have another case, because the client is Linux, too. Just seemed similar, at first.

Hello Jānis,

Could you please describe your issue? Does it differ fron initial one only in client OS? If so, please report an issue on YouTrack: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA attaching idea.log ("Help | Show Log in...") after restarting IDE and reproducing the issue.
