I didn’t know where to post this, so I did it in the QNX6 group as well, sorry for the cross-posting…
In a QNX 6.3.2 I set up a CVS 1.11.9, the one that comes with the OS. It has no password auth, and works fine in client/server from other QNX6 hosts. Integration with Eclipse is good too, btw.
In a QNX 4.25 I install a CVS 1.7 client, the only version I found that compiles without many tweaks.
So I can’t connect to the QNX6 server from the QNX4 client. I get this:
qnx4$ cvs -d :ext:user@qnx6:/usr/cvs checkout .
Host name lookup failure
cvs [checkout aborted]: premature end of file from server
The Cederqvist says that is an rsh error, but I get the same result with other access methods. rsh/rlogin work well on their own and can find the cvs executable. Trying to debug setting up CVS_CLIENT_LOG I find the clog.out file empty. CVS protocols versions 1.7 and 1.11 are supposed to be compatible.
Thank you for your time… and Happy Hew Year 2010!
