While running, the CVS server creates temporary directories. They are named
where pid is the process identification number of
the server. They are located in the directory
specified by the `
TMPDIR' environment variable
(see Environment variables), the `
option (see Global options), or failing that
In most cases the server will remove the temporary directory when it is done, whether it finishes normally or abnormally. However, there are a few cases in which the server does not or cannot remove the temporary directory, for example:
kill -KILL' on unix).
In cases such as this, you will need to manually remove
cvs-servpid' directories. As long as
there is no server running with process identification
number pid, it is safe to do so.
