 Hello all,

I was trying to remove a module from cvs repository using :

   $ cvs $CVSROOT remove -fR <module-name>

It removed all the regular files in module but not directories.
The <module-name> directory with all sub-directories still
exist in the remote repository.

This is the correct (and expected) behavior. Directories are never removed from the repository. If you want to remove the empty directories from your working area use the '-P' option to update/checkout to prune them.

One of the option I came to know is : # rm -rf <module-name>
on remote cvs server. But I don't have access to that machine
except by using cvs.

How could I accomplish this ?

Convince your CVS admin that this is the right thing to do. If he's good he won't be convinced, and won't do it.
