How do I download the Toolbar2000 sources via CVS?
- Download the latest Stable build of CVS for Windows. (Note: These instructions apply to the command-line version of CVS, not the graphical WinCVS.)
- Open up a Command Prompt window.
- Windows 9x/Me users only: CVS expects a HOME environment variable to be set. To do this, type in "SET HOME=C:" at the command prompt before using CVS.
- Perform a "checkout" to download the sources:
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/data/cvs -z3 checkout -P tb2k
You should then have the sources under a directory called "tb2k".
- When you want to update your sources against the CVS repository, change to the "tb2k" directory, and execute:
cvs -z3 update -dP
(It's not necessary to set CVSROOT before doing an update.)
Why does it download so slowly?
Please be sure you are using -z3 as shown above on commands that transfer a lot of data (like "checkout" or "update") because it activates data compression. If you're using WinCVS, please set the "TCP/IP Compression" option to 3.
I don't want the very latest version of the sources. How do I obtain a specific version?
You can do this by adding -r tagname to the end of your checkout or update command, where tagname is a tag name such as:
If you later want to revert back to the latest sources, execute:
cvs -z3 update -dPA
