Thanks for your reply and suggestions Derek and Mike.

"...Check out the project tree..."
Ok, according to the Cederquist (p31): cvs checkout
The system replies: cannot find module '/design/project/dig/V9/src' -

FYI: The CVSROOT variable for Peggy and me is set to /design/project/dig/V9
and the only system related differences is that she is running c-shell and I
run t-shell.

Tried importing: cvs import -m "Imported sources" /design/project/dig/V9/src
digital start
The system replies: directory /design/project/dig/V9/src is not relative
within the repository

Since she had problem checking out her project tree, she copied her files
from her directory to /design/project/dig/V9/src and tried to check them in,
however it was the same result as I initially got (I don't have any problem
checking her files in).


I tried adding: /design/project/dig/V9/src/cvs add abc.v
The system replies: [add aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs
checkout' first

Lastly, tried to checkout a file as Peggy or myself: cvs
/design/project/dig/V9/src/cvs checkout abc.v
System replies: cannot find module 'abc.v'  - ignored
The file abc.v is already in cvs /design/project/dig/V9/src/ directory and
has been checked in once (it has a abc.v,v) file generated.

What else can I do to find the problem?

        *BZZZT*  Sorry...

        This is the problem.

        Once a project is created, in order to work in the project, one must
first check out the project tree.  (Strictly speaking, this is not
true, but it requires a great deal of skill in CVS to work without the
project tree).  Then, when committing files, CVS has a context to work
from, as saved in the CVS directories in the project tree.

        So if Peggy checks out the project, moves her files into the project
tree, and commits them from there, ahe will have no problem.
