The reason I was confused: you first stated you're using the ones in /usr/share/examples/cvsup, and I assumed that mean you were using it directly. You shouldn't modify any files in /usr/share/examples, as they will be replaced/overwritten during installworld.

But I did as it was listed in the FreeBSD handbook. Are you sure? http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/cvsup.html -- see the first "Note:" paragraph. > > I would also try doing this as a last resort: > > > > rm -fr /usr/home/moin/smbmount/code/SUPDB/sup/src-all > > rm -fr /usr/src/* > > csup -h <cvsupserver> -L 2 /usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile > > As a lost resort, I did a "cvsup -g -L2 stable-supfile", with just > changing the HOST part without changing other entries in > stable-supfile, and I was successful to download the code. I don't see how that would fix or change anything. In fact, I'm fairly certain it doesn't. The error you are receiving from cvsup is telling you "I tried to rename a file, but couldn't". This often implies a permissions or ownership thing. Since the directory you're storing stuff in is on an SMB/CIFS share, I cannot help but wonder if that's the cause of the problem (somehow). > Currently, I am trying out to figure why the customised way is failing.
