Fix for "Absolute Module Reference Invalid" CVS error.
Review Request #445 — Created July 8, 2008 and submitted
|Review Board SVN (deprecated)|
This is a fix for the "Absolute Module Reference Invalid". The problem apparently has to do with the filename argument. If you look at it's contents I have a fully qualified filename. In looking at the C code in CVS they have a method they pump that argument through called isabsolute() and if it hits that check then it bails with the error given. So if you want to view the diff for /path/to/mymodule/config.php you must only give it "mymodule/config.php" (i.e. strip off /path/to/my/). I've confirmed this from the command line. This works: cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/path/to/my/project/ co mymodule/config.php While this does not: cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/my/project/ co /path/to/my/project/mymodule/config.php
Not much...just tested a few local CVS diff's and seems to work fine. More testing is definitely needed.
