Not sure, but you seem to use a local cvs root, so you might try
prepending your cvs root with ":local:", i.e. ":local:d:\cvsroot".

i hope that's a joke!!!
that means that all who work with a local cvs cannot use it. i cannot belive that the software from jetbrains is so poor!!!

Remember that you are talking about an eap-version of IDEA; Use the
"normal" version of IDEA and you can work with local cvs...

I know that this is an EAP version but it would be appropriate for such
a major limitation to have at least a tiny little note in the Known
Issues file or even better: on the download page. You could extend that
to something like:

----


  • download one

  • download two

Known Issues for this build (#810):

- CVS currently only supports pserver

- please especially test new keyboard implementation

- ...

REAL TOUGH DISCLAIMER ABOUT HOW BAD THE WORLD IS

that would save you a lot of bug reports and give us a direction on what
to focus.

post it in the itn tracker as feature!!!

This is not even beta code, this is alpha code, they're adding features
and handing them to us for testing. This is what eXtreme programming is
about. What are you doing using EAP builds as production software? You
should have 3.0.3 installed and use it for production, then have 8xx
installed to look at the new features and try to use it for your work.
If you hit a snag, you go back to production and continue your work. If
this is too much to ask then EAP is not for you.

Don't just on the IntelliJ guys for providing us with FREE previews of
what's coming, or how they choose to do their releases. That's just not
cool.

While I agree that no one needs to comment on the skills of the JetBrains folks (as it is very high), it would be nice knowing what is in the build. Hard to test when the functionality isn't there. I grabbed this release to test the CVS integration but use SSH to connect. Would have been nice to know I was wasting my time trying to get it to work.

NEVER use the local mode for serious development, except if you are
the only one developer on a project or you want to get corrupted
repository. But even in this case it is easy enough to setup a CVS
server on the machine.

HI,

I use pserver but got the same error :

"krr@nswnt1.shd.lan:d:/cvs/cvsrep" for example...

please post a little help for the cvs configuration !

thanks. is cvsnt better or as good as wincvs???

0

CVSNT is a CVS-server, WinCVS (or SmartCVS -- sorry for ads) is a CVS
client.
WinCVS uses a native CVS implementation (quite adequate to cvs.exe)
and therefore supports server functionality like :local: mode.
SmartCVS, Eclipse and IDEA Aurora are/have "only" CVS clients (without
the server functionality to run in :local: mode).

Cheers,
Tom

Hi,

okay I finaly got it

":pserver:krr@nswnt1.shd.lan:d:/cvs/cvsrep" is it.

But where is the EDIT option ???

0

now i have installed cvsnt and initialised all. but when i edit the cvsroot(:pserver:Michael@localhost:/cvs/cvsrep) i get the error wrong password. how can i include the password into my message(:pserver:Michael@localhost:/cvs/cvsrep)???

0

now i have installed cvsnt, but when i set the cvsroot(:pserver:Michael@localhost:/cvsroot) in IDEA(b809) i got the error wrong passord. what's my mistake???

0

>how can i include the password into my message(:pserver:Michael@localhost:/cvs/cvsrep)???

You can't. It is stored somewhere else (newer CVSNT versions are said
to store the passwords in the registry). Don't know, how IDEA handles
it now, since I cannot use builds >=807 at all.

do you work with cvsnt and IDEA??? how/where can i set the password?? when i set the cvsroot(:pserver:Michael@localhost:/cvsrep/root) IDEA(b809) shows an error: wrong password! can you help me? thanks!!!

0

Michael, I too have had this problem since 809 and been asking about it on
here for a while to no avail. I have filed a bug for this at
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=11026

Any idea what cvs client Idea is now using? Before, one would set the
path to the cvs binary in the project options, which no longer exists.

Is it a pure java cvs library?

0

Yes, by the looks of it they are using the netbeans javacvs library
(http://javacvs.netbeans.org/)

If you get "Wrong password" message while checkout project try to connect to
cvs using any cvs client (cvs login). Copy cvsroot from .cvspass file
(ignoring scrambled password) and past it to the cvs configuration dialog.

What directory does the CVS integration regard as the user's home
directory? The Windows user profile directory, "C:\Documents and
Settings\bob" or the HOME environment variable?

Ciao,

User profile. Environment variables do not matter for JAVA
development.
