Description Jay Berkenbilt 2001-02-04 23:36:57 UTC
Create a empty directory, say /tmp/z, and do the following:

cd /tmp/z
cvs -d /tmp/z/repo init
mkdir /tmp/z/repo/dir
cvs -d /tmp/z/repo co dir
cd dir
echo test > a
cvs add a
cvs ci -mtest
echo test >> a
cvs ci -mtest

You get an error such as this:

cvs [commit aborted]: cannot remove /tmp/cvs2kE8KN: No such file or

where the file that can't be removed is a temporary file name.

Running strace shows calls to fstat64 and lstat64.  I wonder whether it's

This is what Fisher with no upgrades.  I have, however, replaced the i686
glibc with the i386 in an effort to track down some threading problems.

Does cvs-1.11-3 from Raw Hide (ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/rawhide/) fix this for
you?  There were some problems with temp-file fixes in 1.11-2 which were fixed
in -3.

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-02-05 22:37:29 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.

Comment 3 Jay Berkenbilt 2001-02-05 23:06:56 UTC
Yes -- cvs-1.11-3 from rawhide behaves properly in this respsect.  I will run
with that for the duration of my Fisher testing. Hopefully including this in 7.1
will be sufficient.

Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-02-06 19:05:37 UTC
Okay, then I'll close this as a duplicate of the bug which was fixed in 1.11-3.
