Hello all,

I am trying to check out a tag as following:
cvs checkout -P -r SPOW_1_1 spow (in directory E:\temp)

But, I am getting the following error.  The cvs module name earlier
was 'SPOW' and when it the repositry was moved to a new location it
was changed to 'spow'. Could this be a reason behind the issue ? Then
what is the solution for this problem.

I think the list is going to want to know
A) what is the version of the client you are using?
   i.e. the output of `cvs --version`
B) what is the version of the server you are using
   i.e. the output of `cvs --version` when ran on the server.

Note some CVS clients will output both the version of the client and server at the same time, but I don't remember which rev started doing that.


cvs: lock.c:222: lock_name: Assertion `(__extension__

<SNIP huge amount of almost un-parseable assert input>
(current_parsed_root->directory)))) == 0' failed.
cvs [server aborted]: received abort signal
cvs checkout: in directory .:
cvs checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

The way I read this is that for some reason CVS can't find the CVS/Entries file.
You would not happen to either be running in cygwin or using a vfat file system would you?

BTW, I just noticed you put "in directory E:\temp", so it is most likely that you are running one of:
CVSNT (different mailing list news:// )
Unix in VMware
"normal CVS" compiled for NT/XP/2K
please help us understand which to better answer your question.
