Installing CVS on Centos 5.3


I need to install CVS on Centos 5.3. There is a RPM that yum detects and it installs it. But when I type CVS at the command line I get nothing. What do I have to do to configure CVS?

When I enter (lowercase) cvs, I get:
$ cvs
Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]
  where cvs-options are -4, -6,-q, -n, etc.
    (specify --help-options for a list of options)
  where command is add, admin, etc.
    (specify --help-commands for a list of commands
     or --help-synonyms for a list of command synonyms)
  where command-options-and-arguments depend on the specific command
    (specify -H followed by a command name for command-specific help)
  Specify --help to receive this message

The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) is a tool for version control.
For CVS updates and additional information, see
    the CVS home page at

I suggest:
man -k cvs

and start by reading a few of the man pages ... cheers, drl

you should try do : yum install cvs

You could use yum search also

yum search cvs.

And finally consider to move to subversion Smilie
