    CVS Directory Removal

    How do you remove an entire directory in CVS? I've tried cvs remove blah but it says it cannot chdir to blah or it cannot find blah.

    Re: CVS Directory Removal

    move into your root cvs directory (not the actual added directory) and remove the directory.

    Example, I have a /home/cvs directory that contains my scripts and docs folders. I cd into the /home/cvs directory on my box
    and "cvs remove doc" to remove the "doc" directory.

    You may have to "release" instead of "remove" if the directory is setup as a module.

    Hope this helps,

    Re: CVS Directory Removal

    Doesn't seem to work :-/.

    Code:
    [ash@gnulinux dkfutils]$ cvs remove .dot-file/
    ashcrow@cvs.darkfire.sf.net's password: 
    cvs server: Removing .
    cvs server: Removing .dot-file
    I check the CVS and it is still there. If I try to commit it it just says it's examinig the directory. Release just says nothing was changed and asks for verification.

    Half the time it says it knows nothing about xyz.

    Re: CVS Directory Removal

    From `info cvs` :
    release--Indicate that a Module is no longer in use
    ================================================== =

    * release [-d] directories...

    * Requires: Working directory.

    * Changes: Working directory, history log.

    This command is meant to safely cancel the effect of `cvs checkout'.
    Since CVS doesn't lock files, it isn't strictly necessary to use this
    command. You can always simply delete your working directory, if you
    like; but you risk losing changes you may have forgotten, and you leave
    no trace in the CVS history file (*note history file::) that you've
    abandoned your checkout.
    So place yourself in $CVSROOT, and run cvs release -d the_dir
    And it should seece to exist in your cvs repository.
    [edit] futher down in the explanation:
    release examples
    ----------------

    Release the `tc' directory, and delete your local working copy of
    the files.

    $ cd .. # You must stand immediately above the
    # sources when you issue `cvs release'.
    $ cvs release -d tc
    You have [0] altered files in this repository.
    Are you sure you want to release (and delete) directory `tc': y
    $
    I belive that says it all..

    Re: CVS Directory Removal

    Thanks, here is the output of doing the above ....

    Code:
    gnulinux# cvs -d:ext:ashcrow@cvs.darkfire.sf.net:/cvsroot/darkfire release -d dkfutils
    ashcrow@cvs.darkfire.sf.net's password: 
    ashcrow@cvs.darkfire.sf.net's password: 
    You have [0] altered files in this repository.
    Are you sure you want to release (and delete) directory `dkfutils': y
    // CHECK TO MAKE SURE IT'S GONE
    gnulinux# cvs -d:ext:ashcrow@cvs.darkfire.sf.net:/cvsroot/darkfire co dkfutils
    ashcrow@cvs.darkfire.sf.net's password: 
    cvs server: Updating dkfutils
    ...updates everythinhg...

    Re: CVS Directory Removal

    Ah, yes.... your on SF. Makes a difference. You have to jump through a
    couple of hoops and be an admin over the cvs project. The SF
    cvs docs are a lot clearer on this than I can pack in a post. If your not
    a project admin, someone who is will have to do it.
