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@127.0.0.1:/home/cvsroot
 
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
