Topic: [OUTDATED] How to use CVS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
[root@ws043 ~]#

Basicly all you have to do is:

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.gnome.org:/cvs/gnome login
####(hit return as the password)
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.gnome.org:/cvs/gnome co gparted

this will create a gparted/ dir in your current dir. You have to enter it and run compilation :

cd gparted/
./autogen.sh && make

(DONT DO make install, otherwise the cvs gparted version will be installed on your system !!)

run it as root :

cd /gparted/src/

to update your cvs dir you only have to type:

cd /gparted
cvs update -dP
###or even : cvs update -CdP, which overwrite local changes with remote.
###and then
###that wont hurt smile

keep in mind the anonymous servers are often 24 hours behind! smile

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 !
