Problems checking out files in clearcase
« on: September 16, 2016, 06:05:52 pm »
I have a file at this path:


If SE is currently in directory (SE's working dir is):


And I try to checkout this file, I get this error in the "output" window:

cleartool: Error: Unable to access "../code/mea/src/mea_read_data.c": No such file or directory.

However, if I change the working directory to my home dir, /home/robb, and perform a checkout, it works fine.

My checkout command is: cleartool co -unr %f

Attached is a screenshot of my advanced options.

Note that "CD to file's directory before running VCS command" is checked.

When I turn that option off, it seems to work.

However, I was having issues earlier when "CD to file's directory" off. But can't replicate that now. I previously had the default of this option to off, and only changed it to "on" when I was having problems. But now I am having problems with it on.

I am on Linux using RC1
