Does anyone know of a HOWTO for installing CVS on RH 7.3.

I tried to follow this one, but I'm having a hard time making the pserver a service and starting it.

Thanks,

Matt

if you successfully completed step2 1-7, you should be able to login and checkout.
Other steps described are only necessary if you want to use cvs' private passwd file (which must be configured in the cvs config files in CVSROOT).

What's going wrong? please post commands and results.

The problem is that when I get to step #6, there is no file at: /etc/inetd.conf

So I put this information:

#
# CVS PServer
#
cvspserver stream tcp nowait cvs /usr/bin/cvs cvs --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver

In a cvspserver file in /etc/init.d/cvspserver - but it won't start as a service, and if I use a GUI to try and configure it, it won't show up - even though this line:

cvspserver 2401/tcp #CVS PServer

is in /etc/services.

oops, it's RH (should have read carefully)
RH uses xinetd, not inetd, so you need to have a
  /etc/xinetd.d/cvs
file with following content:
# default: on
# description: cvs
service cvspserver
{
    port          = 2401
    socket_type   = stream
    wait          = no
    user          = root
    server        = /usr/bin/cvs
    server_args   = -f --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver
    log_on_failure += USERID
    disable       = no
}

Then restart xinetd with
  kill -1 <pid of xinetd>

Thanks for your help!
