View Full Version : Setting up a CVS server in Leopard

May 7, 2008, 03:37 PM
I have recently upgraded a machine to Leopard which was hosting a CVS server. The server no longer works. I have added the environment variables, and ran cvs init, but it claims that CVSROOT does not exist.

Has anyone had any success running a CVS server in 10.5, and if so could you provide some detailed instructions?

Where did you set the env variable? in /etc/bashrc or in ~/.profile
Cause if it's the second, you may have trouble with the user that launch the CVS that don't use the same home folder (the root user, the _cvs user ...).

Next, you may wanna check if the permission are ok with the Root folder.

Sorry, I can't help more then this, I use SVN mostly.
