Error What settings are required for login to CVS using Terminal in Mac OS X?

Hi All,
I want to login to CVS using terminal. I am executing the following command in the terminal :-

export CVSROOT=: pserver:ags_rd@istcvs.corp.apple.com:/istcvs/CVSHOME
cvs login


But i get the following error :

Afreens-iMac:buildTest Afreen$ export CVSROOT=: pserver:ags_rd@istcvs.corp.apple.com:/istcvs/CVSHOME

Afreens-iMac:buildTest Afreen$ cvs login
-bash: cvs: command not found

I tried to define the CVSROOT in the .bash_profile file also, which is under /Users/Afreen............but it didn't work.....



Thanks in Advance,
Afreen

The problem isn't the CVSROOT variable, but that you don't have cvs installed.

Apparently it's part of the Xcode stuff (ref). Can't give you any details, tho, as I don't use an Apple. Those questions probably can be answered in the MacOS X forum.
