If you want STABLE its RELENG_4 only. I don't think RELENG_5 exists as a valid tag but I could be wrong. I've heard elsewhere that using a non-existent tag may leave you with an empty/usr/src so this is consistent with what you've described. If all you want to do is track 5.1 REL with security errata (a.k.a security branch) use: tag=RELENG_5_1 I used this for some time before upgrading to 5.2.1 which uses: tag=RELENG_5_2 I've found that occasionally the cvsup process will hang because the particular mirror I've chosen is having problems or there's network congestion, etc. Try another mirror with the correct tag and let us know what happens.
