The last few days I see a dozens of Checksum mismatches when csup- ing

No errors appear on ports-all.
Is there a problem with the cvs repository ?

Most people will use a local mirror as listed in the handbook:


Check and see if you have the same problem with one of the mirror

I have tried both cvsup.freebsd.org and cvsup.nl.freebsd.org with both
csup and cvsup and I get checksum mismatches on all attempts.

If you've got the same problem, then your cvsup config file for src
could be up the creek.

I have deleted /usr/sup/src-all/* bun that did not fix the checksum
just gave me a lot of SetAttr messages the first run.
If you mean my c{v}sup config file, that hasn't been changed in years
how would an error in that file cause errors on src-all but none on
ports-all ?

If the problem disappears, then the server is up the creek.

I am stumped, as far as I can tell it's no local config problem, but
what's causing it?
I have no idea..
Am I the only one seeing these errors ?

Nope, I am seeing exactly the same thing. (And I am using different mirrors
than you are.)
Since I too am only seeing this for src-all and not ports-all I
suspect it may be a problem with the svn->cvs export. (src-all is nowadays maintained in a subversion repository and the changes automatically exported to the cvs repository, while ports-all is still maintained directly in the
cvs repository.)

Well at least I am not the only one seeing these errors. I think we can
rule out a local problem and will have to wait for someone to fix this.

Note: I use cvsup to maintain a local copy of the cvs repository.
It is not clear if you too is doing that, or if you use cvsup to check out
just the latest version.

I use cvsup/csup to mirror the cvs repo and I do a local cvs checkout.
But until these errors are fixed I will not be doing any checkouts and build
for src. I don't think I can trust the repository...



The fact that all errors are on src-all and none on ports-all make me
suspect it is not a local problem on
my system as both end up on the same filesystem here.
