Description of problem, how reproducible & steps to reproduce:
I mapped a Samba share at my Windows computer to a drive. Then I
tried to checkout a CVS module with WinCVS or TortoiseCVS to the
mapped network drive.
The Samba server was one time Fedora Core 1 and another time Fedora
Rawhide - so in both times Samba version >= 3.0.0.
But the CVS checkout didn't work - it simply died with:
--- snipp ---
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot make directory <cvs-module>: No such file or directory
--- snapp ---
I searched around Google and diverse mailing lists - no
results...some people seems to have the same problem, but still no
result or solution.
The only match I found a few minutes ago:
So I tried a downgrade to the Samba version of Red Hat Linux 9.
Now, all works fine - the problem IS Samba 3.x.x :-(
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
>= samba-3.0.0 (ALL 3.x.x!)
The problem seems to be a bug introduced with Samba 3.0.0beta2 (!!),
as Andreas wrote it at the mailing list (see link above).
Fix that annoying bug immediately, please! Thank you very much :-)
The CVS server, where the checkout was done from cvs-1.11.5-3
(Fedora Core 1 CVS).
Oh sorry, I forgot the Windows versions, I used for that tests and
where the problem was reproducible:
Windows 9x, NT, 2000 and XP (always with the latest available updates)
This is fixed in 3.0.1 according to duplicate bugs reports
on the samba ml.
Can you please try the 3.0.2a-1 RPMS from Raw Hide and confirm whether
or not they fix the problem?
The latest Samba RPM from Fedora Development seems to work :-)
