Me and a friend have been TRYING to setup CVS for the past few weeks, but we can''t even get the @#%*ing commands to get the server running! Anyone out here have an EASIER way for an international team of 20 to all work on one engine at once? Please help me before I go insane (I''m already a TAD insane after trying to figure this out.)

Might be a better idea if you explained exactly what the problem is. General ranting about "it doesn''t work" isn''t helpful to anyone.
State clearly:
o What you did.
o What happened when you did it.
o What you expected to happen.

Surprise surprise, they eat it and he leaps out from behind a bush shouting "Gotcha." It wouldn''t have made any difference if they hadn''t eaten it... because if you''re dealing with somebody who has the sort of mentality which likes leaving hats on the pavement with bricks under them you know perfectly well they won''t give up. They''ll get you in the end. -- Douglas Adams

Err?

The CVS for NT server comes with an installer. Are you sure you downloaded CVSNT[1]? If you want to install a CVS server on Windows, you need that one - the regular Win32 cvs distribution doesn''t cut it since it only contains the client tools.

Read those faqs and guides I pointed you to too.

I get cvs running, but it does not add repositorys and it gives init errors. But I cannot view the logs to them. I also cannot add user names, I get Initialization errors also.


After this.. I hate cvs..

You would think they would make it easy.

*Before this post generates flames, I''d like to mention that everything below is my opinion and may not be true*

Forget CVS. I''ve tried to install and use it on several occasions and in my opinion it is complete and utter garbage. It is hard to set up, hard to use, hard to maintain and in my opinion it does a very poor job at source control.

We use FreeVCS. The software was written for Delphi but can be used for anything else. I use it with 2 other members on a .NET project and we store everything in it including C# files, html files, documents, images, database scripts etc. The software is free, and in my opinion is superior to CVS in every way possible. It is significantly easier to install, it''s easier to use, it''s more intuitive and it does a much better job managing your files. Try it, you won''t be disappointed.
