 Lars Jensen - cvs update problem  1/11/2006; 11:25:52 PM (reads: 378, responses: 2) We're trying to upgrade our webwork 2-1-patches installation ro version 2.2. We use CVS to do this. When we try to do a cvs update we get errors. It turns out that this is because our webwork Root is: instead of Because all out CVS/Root files refer to ext instead of pserver, we're unable to do a cvs upgrade. My question is how do we proceed from here. Do we have to edit all CVS/Root files and enter the second line above in place of the first? Or is there a better way? Thanks, Lars. <| Post or View Comments |>

If not, the workaround is to change all the CVS/Root files. Here's a quick way to do so: find . -regex '.*/CVS/Root' -print0 | xargs -0 perl -pi -e 's/^:ext:/:pserver:/' Hope this helps. -sam <| Post or View Comments |>
