Cedega CVS download problem

Hello, when I try to use the cvs Cedega installation script from
I get this error:

"Checking out CVS ... May take a while

EOF from server, retry number 1

EOF from server, retry number 2

EOF from server, retry number 3

EOF from server, retry number 4

...and so on.

I'm using the internet on a wireless connection on my university campus. Does anyone know how to fix this / download the cedega cvs manually? Alternatively, could someone email me the .tar.gz file that is downloaded using this script?

Did you go to cedega's website and follow the "how to download cvs" instructions they provide for free?

The problem turned out to be that I was using a wireless internet connection. Managed to use a wired connection and everything was ok.

The build then failed becuase I'm using a 64-bit computer (FC5 x86_64), but then that's another story
