What commands are you running? Is the above the complete output?

You're probably best off downloading and untarring:


and then "./darcs-all pull -a" to get up-to-date. These are --complete

Unfortunately we don't have a tarball that includes the extralibs at the
moment, so you'll still need to "./darcs-all --extralibs get" them
(either partially or completely).

If you don't want to hack on it then --partial is prefered as it's
quicker and takes up less disk space.

I don't know what's going on there.
