I'd like to check out the SwingX project from CVS on "java.net", but the "Check out from CVS repository" dialog isn't able to help me...
On the page:
...the instructions (for registered users) indicate that I should go for the "swingx" module of:
...but this isn't working. Specifically, when choosing the option to checkout a new project from CVS from IDEA's welcome screen, I can specify the new CVS server using the above parameters (and successfully test the connection), and then I need to go onto the second dialog in the IDEA wizard ("select cvs elements to check out"). It displays a tree with the root element being the cvs repository name, and a branch "loading"... and just hangs.
I waited 20 minutes with no results. Clicking "cancel" closed the dialog box, and left me with an unresponsive grey IDEA main window. Is it a bug or have I missed something?
In any case, using an Eclipse-2.1-based-WSAD-5.0 CVS explorer, I had to wait a short time (there's a LOT of modules), but it got them and I was able to check out the project that interested me. I then copied these files to a new folder, set it up as an IDEA project, told it I was using CVS (without needing to specify any parameters), and it worked. I can for example correctly access the CVS history on the files.
