Hi all,

I use the following following command to obtain the svn version of espresso:

werner at debian:~$ svn checkout 
svn://scm.qe-forge.org/scmrepos/svn/q-e/trunk espresso

then I cd to the directory of pwgui:

werner at debian:~$ cd ~/espresso/espresso/GUI/PWgui

and now, typing the command ./pwgui to run it and meet the following 

werner at debian:~/espresso/espresso/GUI/PWgui$ ./pwgui

   This is PWgui version: 4.3

  PWgui: using the system default "tclsh" interpreter

  PWGUI       : /home/werner/espresso/espresso/GUI/PWgui

    It seems you are using CVS version of PWgui/Quantum-Espresso.

    For the CVS version you need to do the following:
       * cd into GUI/PWgui directory, and
       * execute: make cvsinit

This is a svn version, why it give me the above informations on 'CVS
