F.3 Other common problems

Here is a list of problems which do not fit into the above categories. They are in no particular order.

  • On Windows, if there is a 30 second or so delay when you run a CVS command, it may mean that you have your home directory set to `C:/', for example (see HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH in All environment variables which affect CVS). CVS expects the home directory to not end in a slash, for example `C:' or `C:\cvs'.
  • If you are running CVS 1.9.18 or older, and cvs update finds a conflict and tries to merge, as described in Conflicts example, but doesn't tell you there were conflicts, then you may have an old version of RCS. The easiest solution probably is to upgrade to a current version of CVS, which does not rely on external RCS programs.
