Hi Todd

You should always CC the list, please.
I don't know everything, and don't always respond.

Thanks a lot for your help!
Sorry I missed lot of relevant info in my post.
My CVS server is Linux,(Slackware 2.4.22)

Note: for version I indicated output of
cvs --version
... not
uname -r

The version of the Linux OS does not matter...much.
and since once build Flavor Needs to compile on windows (ant/java) etc.We use SMB mount and run the build script through Cygwin on Windows. We Use Pserver access method.

repo on Linux.
Client on Windows.
accessing the repo with :pserver:.
Unknown cvs version on server.
building inside of Cygwin environment.
Unknown cvs versions on client.
receiving error message:
"cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot open nmstools/j2sdk/linux/1.5.0_07/demo/jvmti/hprof/src/CVS: Permission denied"

sandbox on SMB???
sandbox is SMB mounted from a Unix server???
sandbox checked out with cygwin cvs or CVSNT???
ant trying to use cygwin cvs or CVSNT version???

Are you using the cygwin cvs, CVSNT directly or through wincvs...or all the 
Note: you should IIRC not mix the use of cygwin cvs with CVSNT as they use different line endings (sometimes) on/in the control files.

The error message above looks like you specified a sandbox to use as a repository????

What does your $CVSROOT variable look like?

The windows machine ius running Windows 2000 Professional.
I will browse through the link you sent.
Thanks again

Your welcome.

For what ever reason your userid/groupid does not have permission to
read/write in the nmstools/j2sdk/linux/1.5.0_07/demo/jvmti/hprof/src/CVS
directory, you will have to figure that out possibly with the help of
your administrator.

We do have a smbmount on windows from the linux machine.

This implys that you are using a Network File System (SMB in this case),
and tricking CVS into thinking the repository is local to a machine.
You should search the mailing list and make note of the number of the
messages indicating that it (corruptions) had something to do with a
Network File System[1]. Summary: it is a _very bad_ idea to use NFS or SMB as the connection
method for CVS.

It might help us to understand your problem if you also included clearly
which OS is your server.  If windows is your server then you need to ask
on the CVSNT list[2] about how to do remote connections, i.e., :ext:,
:ssh: or :gsapi:.  If your server is Unix (Linux) then be clear about it
when you ask back here, but I can tell you now that your best bet, from
windows clients, is to use either :ext: (CVS_RSH=ssh) or :pserver:.

In future messages please be clear to us about:
1) the OS that the cvs server is running on.
2) the CVS version running on the server. (output of cvs --version)
3) the connection protocol, i.e., none :local: :pserver: :ext: ... .
4) the OS that the CVS client is running on.
5) the version of the CVS client. (output of cvs --version)
6) the exact command you ran on the client (assumes you used a command
7) the exact error message.

Does someone knows what could the issue and how to  solve it or if any

workarounds thanks in advance regards pranab
