This is a classic windows error: you're trying to check out a directory which contains two files that differ only in case. (POLY.pht and poly.pht). This works fine on Unix systems, but not on win32 filesystems which are case-insensitive. The two files simply cannot coexist in the same directory on windows... windows considers them to be the same file.

You need to clean up the files in that repository directory, so that the directory can happily exist on win32. Either have a unix person delete redundant files (are POLY.pht and poly.pht identical?), or rename them.

I believe this problem has been fixed in both OpenAxiom and FriCAS. I suspect that it was also fixed in the old Axiom.

Status: open => closed

Please reopen if you consider this to be still a problem on axiom.
