I've run into problems before with some left over files (can't remember
what they were) that CVS wasn't reporting by default. Try:
cvs -n update -I ! -I CVS | grep '^? '
CVS ignores a bunch of files by default. -I ! prevents that, and -I CVS
re-enables igorning of the "CVS" control directories.
I've also had problems with left over sym-links. I don't think there
should be any sym-links in /usr/src other than for obj dirs. Use "find
/usr/src -type l | grep -v '/obj$' " to get a list of all sym-links that
should probably be removed.
Hope this helps,
