|Subject:||Installing CVS on Red Hat 7.0|
|Date:||Mon, 8 Oct 2001 14:52:22 -0400|
I am currently trying to get a remote CVS server setup on a Redhat 7.0 system. What is wanted is for the developers to connect to this central repository with WinCVS and Checkin/Checkout code. I have gone through the Setup documents and I can not figure out why the cvspserver is not listening. With Redhat Linux 7.0 I had to change the inetd.conf line into a xinetd.d file which looks like:
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/bin/cvs
server_args = cvs --allow-root=/home/cvsroot pserver
disable = no
The line is in the /etc/services file for cvspserver to listen on 2401 tcp & udp. I have CVSROOT set in /etc/profile. After I did that I created a blank file in /home/cvsroot/CVSROOT/ called passwd. Then I added myself as a user into cvs (using the same password to login to the machine). Next I ran: kill -HUP pid. Replacing pid with xinetd's pid number. When I run a netstat -ta --net | grep cvspserver I get nothing. Is there anything special I need to do? I think it is something really small that I am missing.
Thanks for any help.
