I too would like to move away from CVS.  What is happening on the switch to Mercurial?

Last night, I was hit by a bug for the second time on NetBSD-9.99.82 amd64, when running
cvs up -dP -A
from /usr/src

I was running in a root window in Xorg (native) with icewm 1.4.2.

cvs download stopped, keyboard was not recognized though the mouse pointer could move, though clicks had no effect.

I later found a message in the Xorg log file about GPU hang: only the second time this has happened, and only when running
cvs up -dP -A 
from /usr/src in NetBSD 9.99.82 

Not sure if GPU hang is a hardware problem or a software problem.

Strangely, I could read the /home partition by NFS from the other computer.

I had to hit the Reset button.

On the second time, last night, part of the src tree was messed up, with messages about invalid CVS root in some package subdiretories, looked to be within external/bsd

I ran rm -Rf external/bsd, then again cvs up -dP -A, but was stopped in src/external by a broken pipe from the server.

So the src tree is partly messed up, and I don't know what to do.

I could try again from non-X console, or possibly from root xterm with a quick switch to another window.

Or should I try with hg?  I have devel/mercurial built and installed.

Now to find a tutorial for Mercurial for git users: There was one, but I can no longer find it.
