Re: cvs problem

:Hi all,
:I have a strange problem here:
:zoot# cvs checkout src
:[output deleted]
:zoot# mv src src.old
:zoot# cvs checkout src
:U src/Makefile
:U src/Makefile.inc1
:U src/bin/Makefile
:U src/bin/Makefile.inc
:cvs [checkout aborted]: there is a version in src/contrib already
:Why is that? Isn't this supposed to work?

    This occurs when the existing file is not under CVS management.
    cvs will not overwrite it if it is not already managed by cvs.
    Either the directory does not have a CVS/ subdirectory, or the
    CVS/Entries file does not list the file/dir in question (that is how
    cvs knows that a file or directory is under cvs management).

    This type of situation usually occurs when you CP things manually
    or if you PATCH something which creates a new file or directory
    rather then just modifying existing files.
