Lets try this again.

My cvsupfile is copied from the examples directory.  The non-comment lines
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/home/ncvs
*default release=cvs
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
*default tag=RELENG_3_4_0_RELEASE

And I invoke cvsup as root like this:
cvsup -g -L2 cvsupfile
in the directory (/root) with the cvsupfile.

I'm still getting the error message:
Release not specified for collection ""

I (think I)really want to track the 3.4 release branch.  I've commented out
the line "*default tag=RELENG_3_4_0_RELEASE" with no effect.  It is reading
my cvsupfile because I've tried as well and I get the
same message from a different server.

What am I tripping over/stepping on?

If you have not already solved the problem on your own, please include a
of your supfile so we can point out what may be causing the problem.
