CVS Installation on Ubuntu

Login to server as root.
Install CVS files:
apt-get install cvs

Install the CVS server:
apt-get install cvsd

After installing some file it will prompt (UI) for your repository name.
By default it provides 2 repos

Either you can remove these and add one new or let it be there and add new one.
Let say add '/cvsrepo'. Click the OK to close the UI.

If the folder cvsrepo does not exist, then create it.
cd /var/lib/cvsd
mkdir cvsrepo

Initialize the repository
cvs -d /var/lib/cvsd/cvsrepo init

Create a user and password to access the cvs repository (cvsrepo):
cvsd-passwd /var/lib/cvsd/cvsrepo +cvsuser
(cvsuser is the user name who is going to access the cvs repo.
It will ask password for user 'cvsuser' supply the password)
If you want to add more user follow the same..

cvsd-passwd /var/lib/cvsd/cvsrepo +newuser

Change the following

vi /var/lib/cvsd/cvsrepo/CVSROOT/config

Change "SystemAuth=no"

Just make sure the cvsrepo is added.
Open the /etc/cvsd/cvsd.conf file

vi /etc/cvsd/cvsd.conf
Go to the end of the file.
If below line is there then its fine otherwise add the following line
Repos /cvsrepo

then restart cvsd:
/etc/init.d/cvsd restart

Give the right permission to the repo:
cd /var/lib/cvsd
chown -R cvsd:cvsd cvsrepo

Test installation:
cd to some dir

cvs -d :pserver:cvsuser@localhost:/cvsrepo login

cvs -d :pserver:cvsuser@localhost:/cvsrepo checkout .

If its checking out without any error then it means all is well.
Then you can create the projects (module) in cvsrepo.
