I recently placed a project under CVS, enabling CVS under
the Version Control selection.
IntelliJ seems to accept things, as the CVS coloring scheme
immediately comes up and is accurate. However, I cannot
actually perform any CVS operations in IntelliJ.
For example, I added (externally) a directory and file,
xml/init.xml, via the following commands:
cvs add init
cvs add init/xml
IntelliJ recognizes this directory and file as added
entities, since it colors them green and when I access
"commit" from the CVS menu I get a "Commit File" dialog
with a textbox for entry of the comment, etc. However,
when I try to actually perform the commit, I get an error
dialog containing the message:
Invalid cvs root: absent
How can I make CVS work under these conditions?
