CVS access to SDL source

If there is a administrater I should email directly, please tell me
and I will talk to them rather than clutter the list up. But here my

There is instructions on the website ( telling
how to use anonymous CVS to get and update a copy of the source. I
have been trying to do it but I can’t get it to work. cvs hangs when I
try to do a checkout or update. I am using these commands:

cvs -d :pserver:guest at login
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:guest at checkout -r devel_1_1_0 SDL

I am using the password “guest”. I seem to be able to login fine, but
the checkout command hangs. I’d send you an error log if I could, but
cvs does not output any messages at all. I’m having a similar problem
with the XFree86 cvs system, so it maybe a problem at my end.

I tried a test that was recommended in the CVS docs. I did “telnet
cvs.lokigames 2401” and sent some text that would elicit an error. I
didn’t get any response at all. Thanks.
