Forum .LRN Q&A: CVS for dotLRN?

Collapse
Posted by Bruno Mattarollo on

Hello,

I was trying to do an upgrade from CVS of an installation of OpenACS 4.6.1 and dotLRN pre-1.0 and I get:

$ nslookup -silent dotlrn.openforce.net

** server can't find dotlrn.openforce.net.: NXDOMAIN
Looking at cvs.openacs.org doesn't show the dotLRN* packages.

Does anyone knows where the CVS for dotLRN is now?

Use openacs.org instead of dotlrn.openforce.net.

It's the same box, always was, but now that OpenForce is out of business, so is the openforce.net domain.

I have replaced the Root on one of the packages to test it but I get this errors now:

$ cvs update -Pd
/dotlrn-cvsroot: no such repository
cvs update: authorization failed: server openacs.org rejected access to /dotlrn-cvsroot for user anonymous
cvs update: used empty password; try "cvs login" with a real password
My root is now:
$ cat CVS/Root 
:pserver:anonymous@openacs.org:/dotlrn-cvsroot
Peter has sent an e-mail to the maintainers of that box with some more information. I don't know what the problem is but I hope it's going to get fixed soon ;-)

Roberto:  did you edit ~/.cvspass?  Of course, now I'm getting a connection refused...

Hello Lamar,

No worries. No, I haven't edited .cvspass but it shouldn't be needed as "anonymous" should not need a password... right?

Does anyone know how to check out .LRN from CVS? I'm getting

$ cvs -d :pserver:mailto:anonymous@openacs.org:/dotlrn-cvsroot login
Logging in to :pserver:mailto:anonymous@openacs.org:2401/dotlrn-cvsroot
CVS password:
/dotlrn-cvsroot: no such repository

What's the correct CVSROOT???

Thanks.

Yes, use :pserver:anonymous@dotlrn.openacs.org:/dotlrn-cvsroot as your CVSROOT that should work.

Oscar,

I went ahead and changed the two lines in the CVS install document ( https://openacs.org/projects/dotlrn/dotlrn-doc/dotlrn-installation ) that were incorrect.

     cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@dotlrn.openacs.org:/dotlrn-cvsroot login
     (hit return for prompted for password)
     cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous@dotlrn.openacs.org:/dotlrn-cvsroot co dotlrn-core 

Any other problems with that document?
