CVS is pretty obsolete now. You should read up on git or svn instead.

Hey hey ... First post, Welcome to LQ!

Tip for future reference, u r = You are or You're plz = please and thnx = thanks. Text speak is hard to read, and commands given, are usually the only shortened thing written in that fashion to avoid confusion among users. So if you could spell out your words, That would be most helpful.

You may find this link to your liking, it tells what to do, then follows with an example:
BASIC USAGE CVS

Or if you are looking for something more specific, Elaborate on what you have posted so far:

What are the some problems you mention?

And back to my question: what have you read about cvs,
what were your google search terms for examples, what is
missing from the results?


Cheers,
Tink

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Here's one to get you started:
CVS User Guide

As indicated by Tink, if you encounter problems/errors you need to be more descriptive in your posts and at least let us know what is it you don't understand. If you just want to learn CVS, although better to learn git, SVN, Mercurial as pointed out already, then follow the link above.

Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

That's easy! Follow the link I posted above, read one of the user guides listed there and apply what you've learned. When you have problems following a guide found online, that's when you turn to LQ for anwers. Nobody here is going to hold your hand if you don't want to put in some work first.

Kind regards,

Eric

For our sanity,please could you confirm that you read us telling you that CVS is obsolete and that we generally recommend not learning cvs in the first place?

As Hevithan said, you need to SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS. Text-speak garbage is hard to read...and if you can't be bothered to write out a question, why should we be bothered to answer it??

And again, did you read the links/suggestions given to you? If you want help, you need to post answers to the questions people put to you.
