Hey guys, I didn't know where to put this so I just decided the Dev. Den would work well.
Preface Information: Communicating over wireless to an old computer, running Xubuntu 10.04 and CVS via Pserver authentication on CVS version 1.12.13 client/server. Working on my Dell Laptop using Eclipse and Java is the language of choice in this case.
After my initial tribulations
with Xubuntu (I ended up just buying a PCI Wireless NIC and using it, which works fine), I have been using the machine fine and dandy ever since.
However, recently (last couple of days), I have been unable to commit any changes to the CVS repositories. I can import projects, replace from head, etc., but any sort of write operations don't seem to work. The procedure hangs on "Receiving Server Response". I let it go for an hour at one point just to see what would happen, and it didn't budge an inch. I've been logging in as an anon user, and cvs owns all the folders for read, write, and execute, in the repos folder (all 4 show drwxrwxr -x).
The projects are not large, perhaps 4MB. I have even tried importing HEAD into a new project, making small changes...still nothing. I tried creating a new text file in an existing branch of the project, but outside of any packages, and committing that and it worked. A similar text file created inside of a package failed, however.
So it leads me to believe there is some problem with writing to the folders inside the project packages. However...what it is, or how to fix it, I have noooo clue. So I was wondering if any of all the knowledgeable gerbils here had any idea on how to fix this?
