Topic: [OUTDATED] How to use CVS
In this example, i assume you are root and you are in the root dir
[johndoe@ws043 ~]$ su -
[root@ws043 ~]# pwd
Basicly all you have to do is:
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/gnome login
####(hit return as the password)
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/gnome co gparted
this will create a gparted/ dir in your current dir. You have to enter it and run compilation :
./autogen.sh && make
(DONT DO make install, otherwise the cvs gparted version will be installed on your system !!)
run it as root :
to update your cvs dir you only have to type:
cvs update -dP
###or even : cvs update -CdP, which overwrite local changes with remote.
###that wont hurt
keep in mind the anonymous servers are often 24 hours behind!
One word about dependencies. To compile gparted from cvs you need :
gnome-common, intltool, gtkmm24-devel, glibmm24-devel, libsigc++-devel, parted-devel
and i think it is all. Please, use a tool like apt-get or yum to get those deps : it will install all needed deps !
