Default Write failed: Broken pipe .. while updating ports tree

Hi !

I was updating my ports tree via anoncvs .. in the end I got this message :

Write failed: Broken pipe

What's wrong here ?

Thank you.

Also , I get this message repeated many times :
Code:
 
cvs update: ignoring CVS/Root because it specifies a non-existent repository /cvs
One more silly but preoccupying question :
Will it harm if I update my src tree & ports tree at the same time (via the same anoncvs server) ?

Something severed your SSH connection to whatever anoncvs site you were using.

The CVS tree contains branches which are no longer used. If you are downloading the CVS tree in its entirety, you are wasting time, bandwidth, & disk space. If your interest is only the ports tree, download as described in Section 5.3.3 of the FAQ.

With the added congestion you are adding to the connection, & the fact that a single server is handling both requests, you will likely not update your local trees in half the time.

True, but in this instance, the repeated warning message is referring to /cvs. This is usually the root of the repository. I think, in this case, either an incorrect cvs update command was executed, or (if used) $CVSROOT was incorrectly set. We haven't seen the commands used to produce the error, nor the $CVSROOT if set, so ... I wouldn't be able to confirm one or the other.

Odds favor the repository behaving correctly. Which means ... odds are long that there was a typo in either the -d option or the $CVSROOT if used.
