I do not feel bad with the "CLI tools". I prefer graphical tools, knowing very 
well the "price" of the use of graphics. I am one of those that programmed a 
6800 microprocessor based system typing on a VT52... (-: I guess that some of 
the readers will not hunderstand "6800", "VT52")

After each stop on error, I re-sent the command "svn co 
svn:// ./".
After about ten trials, there was a lot of messages like:
Récupération de la référence externe dans 'xxxx'
Référence externe extraite à la révision 1258108
(Recovery in the external reference 'xxxx'
External reference to the revision 1258108 extracted)
but nothing looking like an error message.

Now, I have a 2.7Go (2904303007) directory containing 334567 files, and 70478 
sub directories.

I downloaded QT3 and have a qt-x11-free-3.3.8b directoty of 62.8 Mo. The 
man:patch shows a lot of options (related of the version of the diff file for 
the less). Could you confirme that puting the file qt3_3.3.8c.diff in the 
qt-x11-free-3.3.8b directory, then in a Konsol:
  cd /...../qt-x11-free-3.3.8b
  patch < qt3_3.3.8c.diff
Will be OK?

Before compiling and installing, I would like to know if it is possible, at 
the time of login, to choose the window manager between a "Trinity for the 
test" and "Trinity for the work"? I guess that the best would be a "Trinity 
for the test" running in a virtual system,  but one of the last bug posted 
let me think that the testing is not so complet, on a virtual system.

Good luck to everyone,
