echo passwd is "guest"
cvs -d $PLACE login
cvs -z3 -d $PLACE co SDL12

cvs [update aborted]: recv() from server Connection reset by

also with artsd I’m getting a lot of pauses in sound (or more precisely no

so I’m thinking that some versions of arts programs require linking with
This still didn’t solve the no sound issue, but it’s a step closer. umm
this is definitely a bug in artsc…

No idea what’s going on here but I haven’t grunged through much yet.
