I am using the client/server model of CVS, version 1.11.1p1 (both the server
and the client). The server is running on a Linux machine, the client is
either Linux or Windows.

When I try to check-out the files of a module directly to the current
directory, I get an error:
(In the lines below, I replaced the name of the CVS server machine with
<cvs_server_machine> and the name of the module I try to check-out with

On Windows:
C:\Work>cvs -d :pserver:sreinst@<cvs_server_machine>:/usr/cvs/cvsroot get
-d. -l <My-Module>
cvs checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory
cvs [checkout aborted]: no repository

On Linux:
prompt> cvs -d :pserver:sreinst@<cvs_server_machine>:/usr/cvs/cvsroot get
-d. -l <My-Module>
cvs server: existing repository /usr/cvs/cvsroot does not match
cvs server: ignoring module <My-Module>
