2.2. Install CVS

This is the easy part. For Red Hat Linux systems, download the CVS rpms and install them. You can search for rpms for your system using http://www.rpmfind.net.

Create the user and group that will administrate the Interchange repository. For this document, it will be the interch user, (which was setup during the installation of Interchange). But if you understand the mechanics of Unix users/groups, then you can use whatever username and group scheme you prefer. For example, some create a cvs user and add it to the same group that interchange uses (e.g. interch), or add the Interchange user and catalog owner to its group or vice-versa. The integration of Interchange and CVS in the latter portion of this document will require that the CVS user can write to the catalog directory.
