cvs checkout question

Discussion in 'Python' started by Russell E. Owen, Jun 24, 2003.

  1. I'm trying to check out the current Python (read only) via anonymous cvs
    as per the instructions on the "Development Tools" page
    <http://python.org/dev/tools.html> and it's failing

    % cvs -d:pserver::/cvsroot/python
    login (all one one line)
    (Logging in to )
    CVS password:

    but regardless of what password I try I get one of two messages:

    cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server
    cvs.python.sourceforge.net rejected access

    or

    cvs [login aborted]: recv() from server cvs.python.sourceforge.net:
    Connection reset by peer

    I have a sourceforge account, so I also tried logging in as me and that
    didn't work any better. Any hints? I'm on a MacOS X machine in case that
    matters, but I have checked stuff out from other cvs servers.

    This is a symptom of high load on sourceforge's servers. You are doing
    everything correctly, but are being denied access anyway. If you are
    persistent, you should be able to sneak in when the load drops sufficiently.

    You should leave the password empty.

    In that case, SF has rejected you because it is overloaded. Just retry
    immediately.

  4. Thanks for the helpful replies! I did eventually get in and got what
    looked like most of the files (including the two I really cared about).
    It eventually hung and after about an hour of nothing happening I killed
    it.
