    My linux/arch/um/fs in CVS is messed up. The CVS
    server seems to believe it's there, but you can't check
    it out.

    This sequence follows my deleting of
    linux/arch/um/fs/Makefile and putting it back:

    cvs -z3
    -djdike@cvs.user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/user-mode-linux
    ci arch/um/fs/Makefile
    Checking in arch/um/fs/Makefile;
    /cvsroot/user-mode-linux/linux/arch/um/fs/Makefile,v
    <-- Makefile
    new revision: 1.3; previous revision: 1.2
    done

    rm arch/um/fs/Makefile

    cvs -z3
    -djdike@cvs.user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/user-mode-linux
    co arch/um/fs/Makefile
    cvs server: cannot find module `arch/um/fs/Makefile' -
    ignored
    cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot expand modules
    Write failed flushing stdout buffer.

    I'd like whatever is wrong to be fixed from your end since
    it seems that the CVS repository is in some kind of
    inconsistent state. I've tried everything I can think of
    from my end to fix it. Even deleting that directory and
    recreating it doesn't allow me to check it out. I can't
    think of anything more extreme to try through the cvs front
    end.

    This has been assigned to me but I don't seem
    to have the ability to either close or
    reassign it.

    I don't know what the problem would be here.

    I am not sure whether this issue had been addressed in the
    past, so I am responding now in follow-up. Basically, the
    'cvs co' command checks out a _module_ from CVS. Since you
    are specifying a file path, I suspect a checkout is not what
    you really wish to do. What you probably mean to do is 'cvs
    update', which will ensure your working copy has the latest
    copy of the file you specify (or the tree from that point
    lower). I have verified that the entire user-mode-linux
    project CVS repository can be checked out cleanly; there is
    definetely no issue with repository corruption. Please let
    me know if I may be of further service in this matter.

    Thank you,
