[microblaze-uclinux] cvs will NOT complete
This is driving me crazy. I follow the instructions exactly on the webpage:
Following are step by step
instructions for obtaining the uClinux kernel and distribution sources.
It stalles every time. Sometimes it's the same file that it stalls on but it's usually different... seemingly random. I can't get anything done! It's absolutely maddening. Please someone tell me that I don't have to keep trying until it miraculously works... because my experience would lead me to believe that miracle might never come to pass.
Login to the uClinux anonymous CVS server
$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:/var/cvs login
Press enter when prompted for a password
- Decide where you want the uClinux distribution tree to live, say
Obviously you need write permissions in this directory.
$ cd ~
- Get the uClinux distribution environment, uClinux-dist. This can
take a while, there's over a hundred megabytes to download.
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:/var/cvs co
- Get the uClinux-2.4.x source, and place it next to the uClinux-dist directory.
This too can take a while, though not as long as uClinux-dist.
$ cd ~
$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:/var/cvs co uClinux-2.4.x
- Make a symbolic link mapping uClinux-2.4.x as uClinux-dist/linux-2.4.x
$ cd ~/uClinux-dist
$ ln -s ../uClinux-2.4.x linux-2.4.x
I'm using Mandrake Linux 10.1 which came with CVS client/server version 1.11.17.
