CVS Server Installation on Ubuntu Linux 10.04

Filed under: Linux memo,Ubuntu — mariojump @ 6:48 am

I installed CVS Server on Ubuntu 10.04.
CVS repository is copied from another machine, and it is placed in /opt/cvsroot .


# apt-get install xinetd
# apt-cache search git-cvs
# apt-get install git-cvs
# apt-cache search cvsps
# apt-get install cvsps

Edit /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver .

# vi /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver

The file now looks:

# cat /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver
service cvspserver
port = 2401
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = root
wait = no
server = /usr/bin/cvs
server_args = -f –allow-root /opt/cvsroot pserver
disable = no

# /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

Ensure CVS server is running.

# netstat -tap | grep cvs
tcp 0 0 *:cvspserver *:* LISTEN 11676/xinetd
