unable to install via cvs

unable to install via cvs

I'm following the documentation for installing webwork 2.4 on a SLES 11 server and have gotten to the point where I install webwork from the cvs. I enter the command

cvs -d checkout -r rel-2-4-patches webwork2 pg

and get the following error...

cvs [checkout aborted]: connect to failed: Connection timed out

I'm hoping someone could help me troubleshoot what would be causing this, I'm running the command as root.

Hi Anthony,

We've switched to svn and no longer use cvs.

Have a look at

for instructions on getting the code from SVN. Also, I don't have access to a SLES machine, but feel free to update

as needed when you find other out-of-date instructions.

BTW, for live help, you can find us on in the #webwork channel. John Travis is someone there who just successfully installed the new version of webwork on SUSE.

Hope this helps,
