after I finally managed to build a debug version of Panda (and after I finally got my internet back…), I would like to check out the Panda Source code directly from CVS.
The manual is not very clear about how to do this.
I found this
Source Code Repository
To get access to the latest bleeding-edge development version of Panda3D, you can check it out from the CVS repository using the command:
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/panda3d co panda3d
in the manual http://www.panda3d.org/download.php?sdk
and here http://www.panda3d.org/manual/index.php/Tutorial:_Compiling_the_Panda3D_Source_on_Windows saying 2 different things.
Where the second seems to match the descritpion on sourceforge itself
I am new to CVS and havent used it before, how do I set this up ?
I have installed WinCVS 18.104.22.168 (Build 4).
I first created a new folder c:\Panda3D this is where I want the source code to be.
Then I right clicked on the c:\Panda3D folder in CVS and selected “checkout module”
I used " cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/panda3d co panda3d
but the checkout fails with :
cvs checkout -P – “cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/panda3d co panda3…” (in directory C:\Panda3D)
cvs checkout: No CVSROOT specified! Please use the `-d’ option
cvs [checkout aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.
***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****
what am I doing wrong ?
I have tried to use the “2 lines” from the other websites but they also fail.
