    Hi allTrying to follow step by step the isntructions athttp://wiki.synchro.net/install:nix#updatingand I've gotten to the point where I am pulling new files via CVS, but I amnoting some messages that concern
    me if the files are actually getting updatedor not.Not all files, but sporadically and in varying folders I'll get a messagesaying a file is in the way, some examples:C src/sbbs3/chat/build.batcvs update: move away src/sbbs3/chat/c.bat; it is in the wayC src/sbbs3/chat/c.batcvs update: move away src/sbbs3/chat/chat.bpr; it is in the wayC src/sbbs3/chat/chat.bprcvs update: move away src/sbbs3/chat/chat.cpp; it is in the wayC src/sbbs3/chat/chat.cppcvs update: move away src/sbbs3/chat/chat.res; it is in the waywth.. shouldn't CVS be updating those, why would it think they are 'in the way'?I haven't updated any of these files, and the only way they would have
    gottenthere is by the previous CVS pull. The list gets to be extremely extensive, soI'm not feeling like seriously manually removing all the files it is reporting.Any ideas what could be done easily to get the update to 'work' ?thanks,JHbbs.ujoint.org - Running Madly into the Wind and Screaming ...

    Hi all

    Trying to follow step by step the isntructions at http://wiki.synchro.net/install:nix#updating

    and I've gotten to the point where I am pulling new files via CVS, but I am noting some messages that concern me if the files are actually getting updated or not.

    Not all files, but sporadically and in varying folders I'll get a message saying a file is in the way, some examples:

    C src/sbbs3/chat/build.bat
    cvs update: move away src/sbbs3/chat/c.bat; it is in the way
    C src/sbbs3/chat/c.bat
    cvs update: move away src/sbbs3/chat/chat.bpr; it is in the way
    C src/sbbs3/chat/chat.bpr
    cvs update: move away src/sbbs3/chat/chat.cpp; it is in the way
    C src/sbbs3/chat/chat.cpp
    cvs update: move away src/sbbs3/chat/chat.res; it is in the way

    CVS thinks those files were locally modified or created. Just delete the sbbs3/chat dir and do your "cvs update" again.

    wth.. shouldn't CVS be updating those, why would it think they are 'in the way' ?

    It thinks they're local files that did not come from CVS to begin with.

    I haven't updated any of these files, and the only way they would have gotten there is by the previous CVS pull. The list gets to be extremely extensive, so I'm not feeling like seriously manually removing all the files it is reporting.

    Any ideas what could be done easily to get the update to 'work' ?

    Just remove the directory or files being complained about.

    thanks DM.

    I finally resorted to filtering through all the STDERR and removing all the filesCVS complained out.

    CVS does then correctly populate these files.

    If I run CVS update _immediately_ after, CVS gives the exact same complaint.

    why would I do the update again immediately after? to test if it was something on my end or the CVS server that is causing the issue..


    I'm good now, and upgraded to v3.17c, will have to wait and see next time I decide to pull new updates. ;)

    I have had the same issue for some time. Now I just download the necessary archives and then recompile. The files are "in the way". shrug
