Subject :ext: CVS connection method
Date Tue, 17 Jan 2006 15:37:24 GMT
 I am trying to configure continuum to import a Maven 1.x project, but 
Continuum fails to checkout the sources from CVS using the:ext: method.

In the project.xml, I specify this SCM URL


Please note that continuum is the username under which the continuum 
service runs.

The error is:

jvm 1    | 2006-01-17 16:41:41,436 [Thread-1] INFO  
ContinuumScm                   - Checking out project: 'SampleTestCVS', 
id: '47' to '/srv/build/continuum/apps/continuum/working-directory/47'.

jvm 1    | cvs checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such 
file or directory
jvm 1    | cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot write <CVS/Template file>: No 
such file or directory

But if I launch the same cvs command line

    cvs -f -d :ext:continuum@server:/home/cvs -q checkout -d 47 

manually, the checkout works fine.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions..


I have configured the server for public key authentication, and if I go 
to the continuum machine console and perform an

    ssh server

I can log into the server without being asked a password.
