Introduction to CVS

The Concurrent Versioning System (CVS) is a version control system, an important component of Source Configuration Management (SCM). Using it, you can record the history of sources files, and documents. It is primarily used in software development. Note however, that Subversion - which aims to improve over CVS - is increasingly being used instead of CVS.

Dependencies

Optional

Non-Multilib

By default CVS is statically linked against the Zlib library included in its source tree. This makes it exposed to possible security vulnerabilities in that library. If you want to modify CVS to use the system shared Zlib library, apply the following patch:

patch -Np1 -i ../cvs-1.11.23-zlib-1.patch

Fix an issue with getline by applying the following patch:

patch -Np1 -i ../cvs-1.11.23-getline_fix-1.patch

Install CVS by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Now, as the root user:

make install &&
install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/cvs-1.11.23 &&
install -v -m644 FAQ README /usr/share/doc/cvs-1.11.23 &&
install -v -m644 doc/*.pdf /usr/share/doc/cvs-1.11.23

Multilib

This package does not provide any libraries so only one installation is needed.
