Description Anthony Green 2003-08-14 16:20:56 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
If you bring up a file in the cvs resource window _without_ first opening the
file, and then compare two versions, then Eclipse will complain and the compare
will fail (an error dialog followed by an empty view).

I found that it sometimes works when you open the file first.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect to a cvs server, and bring up a file's resource history
2.Select two versions of the file
3.Right mouse click to compare them.

Expected Results:  A nice visual diff.

This might be related to this eclipse PR:


This was closed in 2.1.1.
I'll investigate importing 2.1.1 before RC.
Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2003-08-29 17:30:42 EDT
I was able to reproduce this with a gcj-compiled 2.1.1.
So upgrading won't help.
Comment 3 Tom Tromey 2003-09-02 14:02:12 EDT
I've checked in a fix for this.
