RE: (Newbie) Problems using "cvs2svn" on Windows, with a CVSNT repository

Thanks for your help. I'm moving this back onto the "cvs2svn" list (and
will try to keep the thread there) -- although this message is also on the
main list just to let people who're not subscribed to both know (sorry for
cluttering up mailboxes).

I'd be interested in knowing how to do a minimal setup of Cygwin to solve
this problem (not a general tutorial on Cygwin), if anyone could indicate
this (hopefully helping others at the same time...).

I had the exact same problems, including having CVSNT in the path. I
finally solved it by using the version of RCS you get from Cygwin as opposed
to the one in the readme.

Hope this helps.
