[vlc-devel] Subversion Account?

Hello VLC People,


The page http://developers.videolan.org/svn.html mentions something
about an "SVN account" for people who "had a CVS account before".  I
have neither, and the command "svn co svn://svn.videolan.org/vlc/trunk
vlc-trunk" given on that page does not work for me, either under Windows
XP Professional cmd.exe or the Cygwin environment installed on the same


Can't connect to host 'svn.videolan.org': A connection attempt failed
because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of
time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed
to respond.


Do I need to establish such an account?


I'm just looking for the possibility of a cleaner and more organized,
complete, buildable version of VLC.  I have v. 0.8.5 downloaded, along
with the "contributions" libraries, and 3 other libraries that
"configure" asked for that are NOT in the contributions and that I found
on my own and did successful "makes" on ("libmad"; "id3tag";
"libmpeg2").  I did "--disable-ffmpeg", "--disable-wxwidgets" and
"--disable-skins2" with "configure" just to resolve complaints it made.
Might this mess up compilation or other requirements?  From my searching
about, the project identified as "ffmpeg" seems to be dormant and
unavailable everywhere.  "make" fails during compilation prior to use of
"module_handle_t" in one of the headers, an error that appears in
several developer posts on your Forum WITHOUT any pertinent answers.
I'm new to the Cygwin / GCC environment, and looking at everything I can
find about configuring, including and excluding things to make the build
happen.  I've seen some examples of "./configure" in the instructional
notes and user posts containing long lists of "--disable", "--enable",
"--with", and other parameters, with no clear explanation as to how to
choose among them.


Is it all really supposed to be so difficult?  Should I post the above
on the Forum myself?
