I assume MacCVS is a GUI of some kind?.?

Check in the MacCVS GUI for an option for compression, and turn compression
off if it is currently on.

The error message indicates, as far as I can tell, that there was a problem
with the compression routines, which then equates to an IO error. Turning
off compression and then having the commands work would confirm that the
compression routines are the problem.

It might also be a good idea to see if you can find out what the underlying
CVS (and version of it) is under MacCVS, i.e. is it the normal unix CVS one
or the extended CVSNT.

on 07 Nov 2004 Mark D. Baushke responded to Wu Yongwei having the same
trouble as David Carson, that both client and server may need upgraded to
(when using just the unix CVS) 1.11.17.

BTW, did the condition of it working change when you upgraded clients or
servers(like maybe a yum update on a server machine), or was it just a
sudden onset of non working?  is it affecting all clients or just a few?
