slakware 11.0 and CVS problem


My friend had slackware 10.2 in his laptop and he has upgraded to slackware 11.0.
But there was a minor problem. Using the new cvs package from slackware 11 he wasn't able to checkout (or maybe other command) to the s/w project he is currently involved. He downgraded to older cvs package (from slackware 10.2) and it's working.
Anyone have experience similiar?

I run CVS repositories on 2 boxes here with no problems - both are Slackware 11.0 with the cvs-1.11.22-i486-1 package installed.

What errors was your friend getting?

Somekind of glibc error...

--edit--
but like I said, using cvs 1.11.20 package from slackware 10.2 solves the problem. I don't know why can be like this. Only God knows why =)

It sounds like the upgrade from 10.2 to 11.0 wasn't completed properly. Do you know what upgrade process that he used? For example, did he manually go through Changelog.txt and upgrade packages or did he use a tool like slackpkg to do the upgrade?

I don't have specifics - my first ever precious notebook is NO MORE CRYYY!!! - but I had a similar package with svn. Theres an extra package you need. Slack 11.0 has more; look for the new stuff.

Sorry for long time reply...
Currently i use slack 11.0, here's the error message using cvs 1.11.22
Code:
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x080d7330 ***
this happen when I want to checkout or commit of my office project.
Using cvs 1.11.22 from slack 11 fresh install also has the same problem.
Hmm,this is weird..but it's not a big prob.
I still use 1.11.20.

Try compiling a different (more recent) version of CVS. And make sure to only have one version installed at one time.

It takes no more than 2 minutes ... can you really be that lazy ? Or is your computer ancient so it takes 1 hr to compile it ?
