Description pgiannoz 2000-05-18 12:18:58 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).
Comment 1 Stephen Rasku 2000-07-18 15:51:28 EDT
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?
Comment 2 pgiannoz 2000-07-25 10:44:32 EDT
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
my path.

> 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

support releases.
