Unable to add new modules to repository

Unable to add new modules to repository

Unable to add new modules to repository

Hello guys n gals.

I'm having CVS issues with a server I inherited.  It is a CentOS 5.0 Linux box with the following directory structure as it pertains to CVS:


All the modules are stored inside /home/cvshome/REP.  Say I have an existing module named KillerApp.  I am able to checkout the module (via WinCVS) using the following CVSROOT (SSH Protocol) string:


As you can see, there is no mention of REP in that string yet it is miraculously checked out successfully!

I then try and add a new module (it doesn't matter whether via  WinCVS or at the console) it adds the module to the /home/cvshome directory.  If I move the directory manually into the REP subdir, I'm not able to check it out.  What do I need to do to ensure that new modules go into the REP subdir?


RE: Unable to add new modules to repository

Nevermind people, I've sorted it out!  I have been doing some reading and it appears the file '$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/modules' holds the secret.  I'll play around with it and should this not be it, I'll be sure to post back...
