Rather, you should set CVSROOT in the environment, -- and the full setting also includes the password for "anoncvs", so it's: export CVSROOT=:pserver:anoncvs:anoncvs@...ncvs.owl.openwall.com:/cvs > this produces an error: > > fisher@elf:~/cvs$ cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs@...ncvs.owl.openwall.com:/cvs co -P > -r Owl-1_0-release -d Owl-1_0-release Owl > cvs [server aborted]: cannot write /cvs/CVSROOT/val-tags: Permission denied > > AFAIK, this is a server-side error. True. I've fixed it now. But there's little sense for you to checkout Owl-1_0-release, -- you already have that and probably want Owl-1_0-stable or current instead. This may be done with: make checkout TAG=Owl-1_0-stable or: make checkout TAG= (The latter will get current.) Note that all activity after the 1.0 release has been on current so far. I intend to commit stuff into 1.0-stable once there's the first critical security or reliability fix needed. I might also include some not-so-critical fixes (tested in current) at the same time. -- /sd
