apt-get install cvs

Create a CVS user#
useradd cvs
#     passwd cvs

Configure CVS

Open /etc/profile and append following line:# vi /etc/profile
Append following line:
 export CVSROOT=/home/cvs
Save the file and exit to shell promot.

Make sure your /etc/xinetd.d/cvs looks as follows:

# less /etc/xinetd.d/cvsOutput:

service cvspserver
{
disable            = no
socket_type    = stream
wait                = no
user                = cvs
group              = cvs
log_type          = FILE /var/log/cvspserver
protocol          = tcp
env                 = ‘$HOME=/home/cvsroot’
bind                = 192.168.1.100
log_on_failure  += USERID
port                = 2401
server             = /usr/bin/cvs
server_args     = -f –allow-root=/home/cvsroot pserver
}

Note: Replace 192.168.1.100 with your actual server IP address.

Restart xinetd:# service xinetd restartAdd users to this group (see this howto for more info)
