Re: [suse-security] CVS is broken after last update on SuSE 8.2

I installed the last CVS update on our SuSE 8.2 CVS server last Thursday

"cvs update: move away <xxx>; it is in the way" when running cvs update.

Right...

It seemed to be rather machine specific, not user specific (different windows clients, SuSE machine is running pserver). But downgrading to the original version delivered with 8.2 made the errors go away.

...also to be expected...

This is the first time (for me), that a SuSE update broke something
rather bad, so I'm confident that this was just a one-time mistake ;-)

...not really...

Is this going to be fixed? It is not really critical at the moment, because the CVS server is an internal machine, but I keep it updated nevertheless.

...and no. :-)

You're misinterpreting the source of the error; it's not Suse, it's CVS. The CVS developers have changed the default action in seveal areas "recently", IIRC. So as Suse pulls those patches in for the updates, you get the "new features". Goto http://www.csvhome.org and check out the some of the changelogs, FAQs, and those sorts of docs.

HTH,
Kevin
