01) Open up a shell
02) su to root
03) Make sure you have the latest version of CVS
pacman -S cvs
04) Make sure you have the latest version of xinetd
pacman -S xinetd
05) Now create the directory that will become your CVS repository.
mkdir /home/cvsroot
06) Initialize your CVS repository
cvs -d /home/cvsroot init
07) Create a group called cvs - members of this group will have write access to the repository
groupadd cvs
08) Create a user named cvs
useradd -d /home -g cvs -p password cvs
09) Set the owner and group of the repository
chown -R cvs:cvs /home/cvsroot
10) Set the proper permissions for the repository(set group ID, owner: read write execute, group: read write execute, others: read execute)
chmod 2775 /home/cvsroot
Add any users that you want to have local access to the repository to the group cvs by using the following two steps.
11) Get a list of the groups for a user.
groups someuser
12) Set the groups for the user. The group1 group2 etc. are the groups you got from the previous step. '''NOTE: make sure not to use spaces when listing the additional groups'''
usermod -g users -G group1,group2,group3,cvs someuser
13) Make a file in /etc/xinetd.d/ called cvspserver with these contents:
service cvspserver
        port            = 2401
        socket_type    = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        passenv        = /home/cvsroot
        server          = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args    = -f --allow-root=/home/cvsroot pserver
14) Edit /etc/services and add cvspserver service if does not exist:
cvspserver 2401/tcp #CVS PServer
15) You must unset the variable HOME before you restart xinetd
unset HOME
16) Restart the xinetd server
/etc/rc.d/xinetd restart
17) Exit root
You can test out the server using the following commands:
export CVSROOT=:pserver:cvs@
cvs login
mkdir ~/sandbox
mkdir ~/sandbox/myproject
cd ~/sandbox/myproject
echo "this is a sample file" > myfile
cvs import -m "description of myproject" myproject v1 r1
cd ..
rm -R myproject
cvs checkout myproject
cd myproject
echo "some changes to the file" >> myfile
cvs commit -m "Explain changes here" myfile
