    When trying to get lincvs to work with an existing project, over ssh, I get the following error on commit:
    Connect method is :ext: , but there is no remote shell specified.

    This despite the fact that there is a running ssh-agent and an environment variable "CVS_RSH" set to ssh. Any ideas on how to get this to work?

      Nver mind... False alarm. I read the ssh based txt file in the help dir which explained you need some special setting on the directories where you expect to use ssh. Now it works.
