Hi, I realize this is potentially off topic, so if nobody has a suggestion, perhaps someone could point me to a more appropriate place? Within the EPIC perspective, I update a file (MANIFEST.SKIP) in my project, and then right click the project, team, commit. Enter a comment, and then proceed with the commit. The result is: dis: protocol error: :ext:firstname.lastname@example.org/cvsroot/dis/dis is not absolute From a shell, I have CVSROOT=:ext:email@example.com/cvsroot/dis And commits work just fine. So, I suspect that it's the extra "/dis" as shown in the error text, however I'm uncertain as to how to get rid of that. The repository information in the project properties cannot be modified. Strangely, Team->Update works just fine from within the Perl Perspective. Thoughts? Thanks! --phil

Is the content of the file CVS/Root correct? If not, you can edit this file (or these files) manually outside of Eclipse and do a "Refresh" on a project to see if this helps. However, I'm afraid there might also be cached values elsewhere, so a complete new checkout might be a better solution.

Yes, CVS/Root was correct. As you suggested, I resolved this via a new checkout. Oh well, it's working. Hopefully it doesn't happen too often. Man, I was formerly hesitant to use a graphical IDE. I wish I had bent to the bliss that is epic long ago. :-)
