We had a similiar problem.

the problem seems to be caused by the -T flag in the perl execution
line. We are running apache 1.3.19 on a Sun server. Perl version is 

This is taken from error_log on the server:

Insecure $ENV{PATH} while running with -T switch at
/usr/local/apache/htdocs/cvsweb/cvsweb_new.cgi line 2716.
[Tue Apr  2 11:09:42 2002] [error] [client] Premature end of
script headers: /usr/local/apache/htdocs/cvsweb/cvsweb_new.cgi

We removed the -T and it worked.

I believe the diff command on Sun does not support some options like

What is the solution?
Is it possible to keep -T?
which diff supports the options mentioned above.

Did u modified cvsweb.cgi for the path of your configuration file (
your cvsweb.conf is located) and the repository path?

   Anyone know about the configuration of cvsweb? I need it urgently. I
tried to install it with 
many ways, but I can't. 
   I use Apache  and Mandrake. The file httpd.conf was configuraded to
permit access the cgi 
scripts, when I run cvsweb.cgi the message appear:

"Internal Error

that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error
Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while

    In Apache, I configured the ScritAlias like this:

  "ScritAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/html/cgi-bin/"

I copy cvsweb.conf to /usr/local/apache/conf

    I need a cvs that run in the server urgently.

If someone can help me....
