Re: cvs complains of no repository

Initially I sent this directly to Ken.

Sorry Ken. See reply below...

The following  worked for me Ken.

<terminal interaction1>

cvs --version

Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.6 (client/server)

After successfully logging on using
:pserver:anoncvs@sources.redhat.con:/cvs/src "cvs -co -c" worked.

<terminal interaction2>
cvs login
password is anoncvs

cvs co -c
all-naked-tcl -a naked-tcl naked-tk naked-itcl naked-iwidgets naked-blt
all-tcl      -a all-naked-tcl src-support
binutils     -a naked-binutils naked-opcodes naked-bfd naked-libiberty
             naked-include naked-gas naked-gprof naked-ld naked-intl
             src-support naked-texinfo naked-cpu

lots of other good stuff...
