Here is one thinks that I found "manualy" moving things over from Cairo to Dakar... I moved off of sun web server to apache as well during the migration. My "web user" changed during the migration. When trying to edit the migrated site content under dakar, I was getting the following error message after hitting "save":

"=RCS: /usr/bin/rcs -q -l %FILENAME|F% failed: ="

FYI, It turned out that I needed to change the owner information in the CVS version files (filename.txt,v) from webservd, what the sunone web server was running as, to apache... which was easily done with the following:

for i in `ls *,v`; do sed -i -e 's/webservd/apache/g' $i; done

I got the same problem too... I migrate the old wiki with change charset from gbk to unicode(utf-8) and some old topic save cause the =RCS: /usr/bin/rcs -q -l %FILENAME|F% failed: = warning.

the error shown: RCS: /usr/bin/rcs -q -l %FILENAME|F% failed: at /usr/local/apache/twiki.dakar/lib/TWiki/Store/RcsWrap.pm line 419.

but change owner of

for i in `ls *,v`; do sed -i -e 's/webservd/apache/g' $i; done
not work:

I have to hack as following: backup and deleted all ,v version file.

I too am plagued with this problem, and yet my Apache user did not change when I upgraded from Cairo to Dakar. I did change my {Site}{Local} setting when upgrading, but changing it back has no effect on the RCS issue. I upgraded to Apache 2.2.0 before upgrading Twiki, but everything else is the same.

Hello again,

It appears that I did something -- probably running UpgradeTwiki as root by mistake -- to change most of my Cairo RCS comma-V files to be locked by root. Since I don't run my web server or use Twiki as root, I can't edit and then save any of my Twiki files because my unprivileged users can't break the root lock.

So, I'm not sure how this came about or what the solution is, but beware (or RTFM better than me) when upgrading.
