CVS directories are up, and available a in


where XX ranges from 1-24, and is your group number, as found in

Only one person in the group should initialize the CVS repository and
import your initial code. To do this, follow the following steps:

1. set the CVSROOT environmental variable to your cvs directory, ie
setenv CVSROOT /home/solaris/ieng9/cs120f/public/cvs/group3
or if you use bash
export CVSROOT=/home/solaris/ieng9/cs120f/public/cvs/group3

2. type 'cvs init' to initialize the repository

3. This is very important, change to the directory you want to import, ie
cd ~/Nachos-3.4

4. type 'cvs import  my_vendor release_0'
For example, in the above case, this would be
cvs import Nachos-3.4 my_vendor release_0
The vendor and release tags are basically almost anything you want.

Once this is done, anyone in the group should be able to use the CVS
commands on the repository. Before you do any commands, make sure to set
CVSROOT as described in step 1 above, then the following commands are
useful. So...

setenv CVSROOT /home/solaris/ieng9/cs120f/public/cvs/group3

(this could easily go in your .cshrc file if you get tired of typing
it) and then...

 - cvs checkout nachos-3.4
   You need to do this at least once in order to get the current version
   out of CVS. If you already have a directory named nachos-3.4 with the
   source code, it won't work, because it doesn't have the CVS
   information, in which case it'd be best to move that to another
   directory and start fresh with your CVS copy.
 - cvs commit
   commits changes in the current directory tree. It will find any files
   that have changed, and will let you give a message indicating what you
   did. Each version of the file will be saved, and can be retrieved if
   need be. Note that by default you will be using vi to edit this
   information, if you would like to use a different editor, set the
   CVSEDITOR environment variable to the editor you would like to use
   (probably emacs, so setenv CVSEDITOR emacs or export CVSEDITOR=emacs).
   You may get an error saying that the up-to-date check failed, in which
   case you should update before committing (see below).
 - cvs update -A
   Updates the code to the latest version from the archive, will merge in
   changes if your partners and you have both changed the same files, this
   usually is okay, but if there is a problem, you will have to edit it
   manually, as it will put strange messages in your code that cause it
   to not compile anymore.
 - cvs rtag  .
   Labels the current code by a tag specified in the command line. You can
   then use this tag to keep track of older versions of the code. This is
   mostly useful for labeling the code when you are done as the turned in
   code. If you label it and then want to label it using the same tag
   again, use cvs rtag -F  .
 - cvs add 
   Adds a file to the CVS repository
 - cvs remove 
   Remove a file from the CVS repository, the file must be deleted on the
   local system as well. You probably should remove binaries such as
   'nachos' from the repository, as CVS doesn't work very well with

There are many more commands, but these should get you started. CVS's
builtin help is very informative about any other commands you may be
interested in.
