Hi,

we use tkcvs with pserver mode, but when we want to do a Vendor Merge we have the message
"cvs [server aborted]: absolute pathname '/tmp/1447.dir' illegal for server" which is a normal message because the Vendor Merge functionnality use /tmp to merge and that pserver mode does'nt allopw absolute path.

Could Vendor Merge functionnality use another temporary directory which wouldn't be /tmp ?

Thanks

    You can set cvscfg(tmpdir) in your site_def or .tkcvs. But I don't quite understand the error. I didn't write the Vendor Merge module so I don't know the code very well, but that seems like a bug.

    I looked and I don't see anywhere where /tmp is hardcoded, so I think there's no bug. Just set cvscfg(tmpdir).
