Problem with CVS under cygwin - file make:
If there is a better location for this question, please let me know.
I'm trying to retrieve NetBSD-current using CVS under cygwin. I use the
following command lines:
$ export CVS_RSH="ssh"
$ export CVSROOT="anoncvs%anoncvs.NetBSD.org@localhost:/cvsroot"
$ cvs checkout -A -P src
Everything seems to be running ok, until I get the following error message:
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot make directory src/compat/lib/libm/make::
No such file or directory
I think the problem is that the directory in question has a ":" at the
end of the name (i.e., it is "src/compat/lib/libm/make:"), which I
suppose Windows is objecting to. I scrounged through the web-based CVS
repository, and there is, in fact, a directory with that name, though
there is nothing in it that I could see. But I don't know how to make
cvs skip that directory or to keep on going anyway.
Any ideas on how to get around this?
Thanks - Don
