Output from CentOS 5.6: $ hg clone

http authorization required realm: Restricted Area user: password:

I keep getting asked for a user name and password. However cloning works fine for other https repos like: hg clone

Also works fine from Mac OS X 10.6.7 using MacPorts

Okay I figured out what was causing my problem.

First off, the CentOS 5.6 yum repo only has python 2.4, so you will need to manually download and install python 2.6.

Uninstall mercurial if you have previously installed it from the CentOS yum repo, because mercurial would have been installed with python 2.4 files.

Manually download the source for docutils-snapshot and install it for python-2.6. Then download mercurial 1.8.x and install it for python 2.6.

Then anonymous read-only cloning should work

Have you tried an empty username and password?
