"cvs update" unable to patch files ?
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:27:03 EDT
After upgrading to RH6.2, cvs (version 1.10.7) seems unable to patch
updated files (patch version 2.5): the entire file is refetched.
This did not happern with RH6.0 (cvs version 1.10.5, patch 2.5).
This only seems to be a problem if you are using a local repository. If you are
using pserver, it will still use patches. I also checked this on CVS-1.10.8 on
Solaris at work and it's the same behaviour (patches for pserver, full update
for local). Possible NOTABUG?
No, I am not using a local repository. cvs tried to patch a file, then failed
without a message and reloaded the entire files. However I cannot reproduce any
longer this behavior, so my guess is
that it was related in some nonobvious way (I had checked for obvious ways) to
> However I cannot reproduce any longer this behavior
No, no, it is still there...the version in RH6.0, and the one I compiled:
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.10 `Halibut' (client/server)
patch files with no problem; the RH6.2 version
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.10.7 (client/server)
apparently fails to patch files, without any message, then reloads the entire
foing bug cleanup. obsolete release... appears fixed in all current
