apologies - i just installed CVS and need some help. i haven't used CVS before. being the proverbial noob, i rely on very straightforward instructions... :-(

1st, does anyone know whether the error John Cupitt signaled has been addressed in version 3.9? if not, i guess i'll have to give it a shot to fix the code manually.

on the remotsensing.org web site i found this:

export CVSROOT=:pserver:cvsanon@cvs.maptools.org:/cvs/maptools/cvsroot

cvs login

        (use empty password)
cvs checkout -r branch-3-9 libtiff

to get stable libtiff branch

typing

export CVSROOT=:pserver:cvsanon@cvs.maptools.org:/cvs/maptools/cvsroot

worked fine. then i gave the empty password (just pressed return). Something went wrong here. Please see my output:

Waitsfield:libtiff-3.9 jannes$ export CVSROOT=:pserver:cvsanon@cvs.maptools.org:/cvs/maptools/cvsroot
Waitsfield:libtiff-3.9 jannes$ cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:cvsanon@cvs.maptools.org:2401/cvs/maptools/cvsroot

CVS password:
cvs(65946) malloc: *** error for object 0x301f50: double free
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

As you can see, I tried to work around it by creating an empty text file in my ~/ directory, named .cvspass - to no avail.

Can someone please help me out with this?

thanks!
