G'day all,

That seemed to fix a bit of the problem 8-).


I'm now getting the following:

Cvs [login aborted]: reading from server: Socket operation on non-socket



Any ideas??


Thanks again in advance,

I have two notes:


1. the cvs command should look like cvs login and not cvs -d login 


2. The problem you have reported could have several reasons: 

a. caused by a problem of the sourcforge cvs server. Please try later
again or write a bug report to the main sourceforge crew. 

b. if you sit behind a firewall and the cvs port isn't open, than you
will get this message. In this case you should contact your firewal

G'day all,

I'm new to the list, so please forgive me if I'm asking something that
is in a FAQ, but I can't seem to find answers anywhere, so I'm hoping
you guys might be able to help 8-)



I've installed qt3 on my cygwin system, and have been following the
steps outlined at


but when I get to this stage

1.checkout qt 3 sources 

2.                         export
CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous at 
3.                         cvs -d login

Just press "Enter" if there is a question about a password 

cvs co -r QT_CYGWIN_3_1_BRANCH qt-3


.after entering nothing for the password, I get

"cvs [login aborted]: connect to failed: Connection refused."


What am I doing wrong??  I'm following the steps, but can't get very
far, and would really love to start compiling some programs soon.


Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered,



David Cole
