cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed - giving up
What is wrong?
The devs are in the process of moving the repos to SVN so you may have trouble until they sort this out. You can still get the PKGBUILD etc through abs. In fact, I thought read access was available still...
I do not work in Archlinux, so I couldn't use PKGBUILD or ABS... but I am interesting in way how packages are built in Archlinux.
I'll try cvs later.
You can always use the cvs web interface here http://cvs.archlinux.org/ otherwise for a complete checkout of the core repo for instance install the csup package on your distro and follow these steps:
1. Create a supfile named supfile.core like this:
# # supfile.core # # this is the host containing the core PKGBUILD files *default host=cvs.archlinux.org *default release=cvs *default delete *default use-rel-suffix *default compress #*default umask=002 *default tag=CURRENT core
2. Run csup -L 1 -r 0 -g -b "/path_where_you_will_store_the_files" -P m -c .sup supfile.core
