The easiest way to install CVS under GNU/Linux is with a package manager such as YaST, GnoRPM, Kpackage, or Synaptic. In all of the package managers that Iím familiar with, the package name is either cvs or cvs followed by some punctuation and a version number. Figures 2-1 and 2-2 are screenshots of the installation with package managers, and show which menu CVS can be found in. Find and select CVS, and then click on the Install or OK button, as appropriate.
The second easiest way to install CVS on GNU/Linux is using a command-line package manager. If youíre using apt (Debian, Ubuntu, and Mac OS X users who are running Fink), log in as root and use the command apt-get install cvs. apt will find the most recent version in its sources list. If using yum, the command is yum install cvs. Examples 2-2 and 2-3 show an apt and a yum installation.
Example 2-2. CVS installation with apt
root@pharaoh:/home# apt-get install cvs Reading package lists... Done
Preconfiguring packages ...
Example 2-3. CVS installation with yum
[root@localhost ~]# yum install cvs Loading "installonlyn" plugin
