Compiling Planeshift from CVS?


I am new to the whole CVS scene, and I was wondering how I might compile Planeshift? Or any anything from CVS for that matter...

I know I have to have a CVS client and I already have that...so steps from there would be appreciated...


Thanks in advance

I know your problem, use linux for some 2 years, but I also can't use CVS.

Look here for some help:

http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=8351

Hope that helps you, the page mentions CVS in combination with planeshift, so it should.

Oh I read that page and I have that stuff...(found it after posting) But, it still does not tell me how to compile programs that I got from CVS. How do I go about doing that?

Oh, that's very simple (normally).

Go to the dir where you downloaded the files, there should be a configure file.
At the prompt, type:
$ ./configure
Now compile the thing by typing;
$ make
After that, become root, using "$ su -" or in another way you like, and type
$ make install

Normally that does it.
