The lock files in the respository belong to you - looks
like the PC crashed before finishing the tagging process.

I think you'll have to manually clean up the lock files.
You if your working copy is OK with what you want to tag
you should be able to restart the tag process after you clear
up the lock files....  

Other people on the alias may have better protocols for 'how'
to clean up the lock files - but as long as you are sure 
you don't have another open process trying to access those directories
in CVS, I think it is save just to go in and remove them....

Subject: CVS tag problem, please help
Importance: High


I have been using CVS for a short while, but never came across this

Before going home yesterday I started a tag process, to be run overnight
(see bellow). When I came in this morning my computer had a blue screen
had to be rebooted. Not knowing how far along it got through with the
process before the PC broke I tried retagging with the same tag as
and I got the message bellow. Then I tried tagging with a different tag
got the same message.

Does anybody know what this means? The update, status and log commands
ok. Is there a command I can use to see if the tag yesterday tagged
everything? Otherwise I can check out this latest and the previous tags
compare the directories but I was hoping for an easier solution.

The biggest problem I have right now is that I can't tag anymore.

I appreciate any and all the help I could get on this one.
