Unhappy Question about rpm for CVSNT

Hello, everyone!

In recent days, I encountered an intractable problem when I moved cvs server from windows OS to redhat fedora core 2 OS. The problem is CVSNT rpm server needs before you install it. There are two kinds of rpm involve it, krb5-1.2.7 and krb5-1.3.5.

The first option is failed because fedora core 2 has defaut krb rpm which is krb5-1.3.1. Therefore, it appears krb5-1.2.7 conflicts with krb5-1.3.1 in /etc/krb5_config file although I use apt-get tool.

The second option is also unsuccessful. When I install upgrade krb5-1.3.1 rpm to krb5-1.3.5, OS mentions is needed. Itís nearly impossible because itís a system package.If you have time, could you help me to check this.

Looking forward to your responding soon.

I think your question pertains to using a CVSNT client on Windows with a CVS server on Redhat Linux. Is that correct?

Have you tried/is it possible for you to try:

1. Local (using a Samba share)
2. PServer
3. SSH
(In that order)?

Have you looked at the CVSNT web site and FAQs?

Have you considered re-installing, using the latest/greatest version of CVSNT for Windows?

And I totally don't understand why you just don't use the native, Linux version of CVS on your Redhat FC2 Linux????

Please let me know what I'm missing; I'd be happy to help .. PSM

Questions about CVSNT should be directed to the CVSNT open source newsgroup.

CVSNT runs natively on Linux and provides additional functions such as Audit to database, E-mail notification, Mergepoints, ACL's, atomic checkout, changesets, lock service (to prevent dead locks), exclusive and co-operative reserved edits and more.

If you are moving a CVSNT repository from Windows to Linux then it is not possible to revert back to traditional CVS because the RCS files in the repository now have CVSNT specific information in them.
