I'm trying to get cvs working under linux, and the docs on the
cvshome site don't say anything about how to set it it up properly.
I downloaded the rpm from cvshome.org and installed it(whatever that
means). It's in /usr/bin and it runs. My quesion is, what is the
proper way to install it as a server?
I've created a cvsowner account.
as root I run:
> adduser cvsowner
> passwd cvsowner (set the password)
> cvs -d /usr/local/cvsroot init
> chown -R cvsowner.cvsowner /usr/local/cvsroot
edit /etc/inetd.conf and add:
cvspserver stream tcp nowait cvsowner /usr/bin/cvs -f --allow-
root /usr/local/cvsroot pserver
and restart inetd;
what I would like to do now is:
1) create a password file in cvsroot
2) change the config to not use the /etc/password
So now I run this as root:
> cvs :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvsroot checkout CVSROOT
This works and creates a copy locally.
I now create a passwd file in the local dir and run
> cvs :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvsroot add
cvs add: in directory .:
cvs [add aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first
What the hell does this mean? Of course there is no version, I want
to add it.....
Is there a nice concise instructions for setting up CVS "Properly".
The docs show how to use it, but not how it should be configured.
