CVS access problems

    When I attempt to browse the CVS at it returns:

    An Exception Has Occurred
    The root "minidlna" is unknown. If you believe the value is correct, then please double-check your configuration.
    HTTP Response Status
    404 Repository not found

    The cvs commands on the Develop page are generating a password prompt and I don't know what to enter:

    Logging in to
    CVS password:
    cvs login: authorization failed: server rejected access to /cvsroot/minidlna for user anonymous

    craigchambers provided a link with CVS information last September (, but it is no longer valid:

    Can instructions for obtaining the latest code from the CSV be posted in a sticky thread?

    Yeah, I can't get to it either.  According to it may take another day or so.  Once it's back up, the same instructions should work.

    Thanks.  Didn't realize it was a sourceforge outage.

    I have just been getting the source code and have been getting a "cvs : connect to 2401 failed: Connection refused" message.

    I have resorted to getting the code through the viewvc web access… quite tedious!

    Have you considered updating to Subversion?
