→Getting the required dependencies
Unfortunately, that command just hung there. CVS wasn't checking out anything. I double-checked the [http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Mozilla_Source_Code_Via_CVS#Requirements
|documentation] and apparently cvs 1.12.9 was reported to work fine. After spending an hour looking around, I came to the conclusion that the college labs had the cvs port blocked.
Now I had to resort to downloading the source and compiling it on my old computer at home.
