I've been trying to get this open source javascript rich text editor project started, but I simply cannot figure out CVS. After following the Sourceforge help my terminal looks like this:
Quote:
Kubuntu Konsole Logging in to :pserver:t1oracle@irte.cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/irte CVS password: cvs login: authorization failed: server irte.cvs.sourceforge.net rejected access to /cvsroot/irte for user t1oracle bernard@bernard-desktop:~/Web Projects/OpenIRTE$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:T1Oracle@irte.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/irte login Logging in to :pserver:T1Oracle@irte.cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/irte CVS password: cvs login: authorization failed: server irte.cvs.sourceforge.net rejected access to /cvsroot/irte for user T1Oracle bernard@bernard-desktop:~/Web Projects/OpenIRTE$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@irte.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/irte login Logging in to :pserver:anonymous@irte.cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/irte CVS password: cvs login: authorization failed: server irte.cvs.sourceforge.net rejected access to /cvsroot/irte for user anonymous
I have no experience with CVS, and I've never used Sourceforge for anything other than downloading. All help is greatly appreciated. I used my Sourceforge account password for the t1oracle login attempts, and I followed the Sourceforge advice of "When prompted for a password for anonymous, simply press the Enter key." for the anonymous attempt. It doesn't work. *edit* I solved this (sort of) I had to type "sudo cvs -z3 -d:ext:t1oracle@irte.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/irte" followed by a cvs command other than login. I don't know why I can't just login and why I have to type all of that for every command, but at least it now works. [Edited by - T1Oracle on July 24, 2007 8:26:13 PM]

put " alias cvs-irte='export CVSROOT=:ext:t1oracle@irte.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/irte' "
into your ~/.bashrc. Then you can do $ cvs-irte to set your CVSROOT environment variable.
If this variable is set CVS will by default use it if you don't specifify another path.

Using $ alias is just a suggestion. You can also use the naked $ export CVSROOT=:ext:t1oracle@irte.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/irte', which is not really convenient especially when having more than one project/CVS.


Have you set your password yet?
try $ ssh t1oracle@host and $ passwd there.

The best thing would be (if you are able to login) to exchange put your public ssh-key into .ssh/authorized_keys on the cvs server. Then you will never have to type in your password again. (and it's pretty save)

You public key most likely is saved in ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub or id_dsa.pub.
If this is not the case you have to create a keypair using ssh-keygen.
NEVER COPY YOUR PRIVATE KEY-FILE AROUND (id_dsa/id_rsa (just in case you are new to this. If not: sorry)


And then you can do $ cvs co modulename and it should work.
Besides loggin without using your password again, which is pretty nice if you have a lot remote-stuff going on.

Btw you can also use cervisia ( a kde-gui-cvs-client)
But it does not help you with your password problem.

1st: figure out your password / set it. Maybe you hsould contact the sf.net-support?
2nd: exchange your public key
