Installing CVS repository in Linux environment

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Please help me by providing sequential steps I need to take in order to install CVS on a Linux operating system. What are the requirements for installing a repository like CVS under different versions of the Linux operating system? Is the procedure the same for installing Ubuntu, Centos, Redhat and Suse?

Installing CVS repository in Linux environment



Installing CVS on Linux like Ubuntu is possible. All you need to do is to install the packages.

Here, I’m going to instruct how to install on Ubuntu.

Start a terminal and run the following commands:
sudo apt-get install cvs
sudo apt-get install xinetd

CVS is installed on your Ubuntu. Now, copy & paste the following code into “/etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver”.

service cvspserver


     port = 2401

     socket_type = stream

     protocol = tcp

     user = root

     wait = no

     type = UNLISTED

     server = /usr/bin/cvs

     server_args = -f –allow-root /var/lib/cvs pserver

     disable = no


Restart “xinetd” by running this command:
sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

A complete guide could be found on Ubuntu Help. For using CVS repository on Linux, you may refer to this link.
