I'm interested in installing CVS on Scientific Linux.
I'm new to Linux and I need to input the command: "cvs co X"
My terminal states that what I have typed is an "invalid command," so I'm assuming that the problem is that I do not have CVS installed. After a lot of googling, I downloaded cvs-1.11.23, where the HTTP download link is provided here.
I see that below the download link, there is a section written "Installation of CVS." I'm new to Linux, so I have little idea of the meaning behind these commands it says to type in, but I decide anyway to copy and paste them into terminal and see if they work.
(Naturally) just punching in:
./configure --prefix=/usr --docdir=/usr/share/doc/cvs-1.11.23 && make
results in the following error message:
"./configure: no such file or directory".
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I'll admit I have very little comprehension of what this configure command is or how I should be using it.
Again my goal is simply installing CVS so that I can use the command "cvs co X".
