make sure you have your $CVSHOME set correctly, and you're checking out, rather than exporting, from cvs.Originally Posted by Bugbyte
Does that have you going then?
Wanted to answer some questions...
For those asking about .NET and Mac OS X... the idea of taking a System.Windows.Forms GUI .NET program and running it native on Mac OS X with no changes is aways off... System.Windows.Forms is being rewritten to use native backends on the targeted platforms. This will take some time. I am a Mono contributor and I know there is a lot to be done still.
I am working on a Cocoa Native application port of Mobile Media Center right now. The skinning system is almost complete and the audio engine is working very well. I will keep you posted. We will need testers when I get closer to a usable product.
The darwine (darwin port of wine) project also looks good. It this stage it can run win32 code that is compiled on PPC.
Sadly most software is compiled for x86, if they can get precompiled exe's for x86 going on PPC it will be great.
Capitalizt, if you need some local testers, I live right up in Worcster MA. I have a mac (not a mini yet), and have Linux/Unix experience (not much programing though). I am more than willing to help out any way I can.
First things first hybridmike, that girl on your homepage is friggin freaky! And I looked around but couldnt find info on your software other then an xm one and a launcher- got anymore info? Free? Pay? Links? thanks alot!
-mattyou guys havent looked under Front ends in software and development...we have a sub forum for mobile media center.Looked around your site. Whats the progress on the Mini Mac front end? Expect to recieve the Mini mac & some parts(touch screen) the 1st week of March. Would like to be ready to fullly setup - PSW before install.

however we have the audio portion ported over to the mac now and are completeing the skining system as well.
Not really. Here's what I did today (where myusername is my sourceforge name):Originally Posted by jpaetzel
My-Computer:~/documents/idash/idash tberry$ cvs -dserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/idash checkout idash
cvs checkout: Updating idash
...and so on until it creates an idash folder inside my idash folder (yes, I know that's redundant) and has the whole project.
Then, I made some changes in XCODE and went to commit them using the following:
My-Computer:~/documents/idash/idash tberry$ cvs commit -m "Added tab support to music module."
cvs commit: Examining idash
cvs commit: Examining idash/English.lproj
cvs commit: Examining idash/English.lproj/MainMenu.nib
cvs commit: Examining idash/English.lproj/MainMenu~.nib
cvs commit: in directory idash/English.lproj/MainMenu~.nib:
cvs [commit aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first
It's looking for the CVS version but can't find it. Here's what's in the directory it's looking in:
My-Computer:~/documents/idash/idash tberry$ ls
I can see the CVS folder and inside are a couple of files, one of which is called 'Repository' but I can't figure out what's up.
Any help, as always, is appreciated.
Ok, the files that end in ~ are (well, I usually call them 'emacs droppings') temporary backups done by XCode. Basically it's so if XCode crashes it can recover to the last autosave instead of just the last time you actually saved the file. It's failing because there's no equivalent file ending in ~ in CVS to compare to.
You either need to get xcode/interface builder to leave those files elsewhere, remove them manually before committing, or tell CVS to ignore them.
For those who have asked about running VPC with navigation software, it works very well. I have run just about all of them. CoPilot 7 Live laptop, streets and trips (hacked for faster updating), Destinator (my favorite) and Street Atlas 2004.
I have Route66 but it is definitely the weakest of the bunch. Bought it 'cause they support the mac and I wanted to encourage that.
I use a Globalsat bluetooth gps which I configure as a serial port on the mac side. VPC then just sees it as that, a serial port and it works very well.
The worst part is that the voice prompts sometimes get mangled, but not a huge issue.
