RE: CVS 1.12.13 on Win : repository location problem

Perhaps because the CVSROOT directory includes a colon, you must use the
:local: prefix so that the software can properly parse the CVSROOT path.

Try (using your example):

        cvs-new -d:local:L:/ESDEV/REPOSITORY_ES2 co -d. eel

I've just downloaded and compiled CVS 1.12.13 on WinXP, but it has a
strange behavior.
I try to tell him the repositiory is on L: (btw, it is a network drive
managed by NFS
Maestro) but it complains :

>> C:\temp>cvs-new -dL:\ESDEV\REPOSITORY_ES2 co -d. eel
>> cvs-new [checkout aborted]: Failed to resolve path:
>> o such file or directory

If I put slashes instead of backslashes :

>> C:\temp>cvs-new -dL:/ESDEV/REPOSITORY_ES2 co -d. eel
>> cvs-new [checkout aborted]: reading from server: No such file or
>> C:\temp>L : hôte inconnu
>> rsh : impossible d'établir la connexion.

I tried to init a repository on my C: drive and it worked (I also imported
a few files),
but when I try to access t with cvs -d C:\myrepository it complains in the
same way.

What's wrong here ?

NOTE : this was fine with my old cvs.exe (1.11.5), even with the network
The only thing that wasn't working was the checkout/export of modules
defined in my
modules file. (cvs was unable to find the module, but if i do the same on
the unix
machine where the repository is, it works without problems). I was hoping
to fix this
with the new version ...
