Hello, sorry if i'm posting to wrong newsgroup.

Can somebody explain me,how to use the local CVSROOT?

My CVSROOT is /usr/local/cvs, and it seems that Eclipse does not understand
this, it wants me to specity server/port/protocol.

How can i fix that?

--
Thank you,best regards

Hi Eugeny,
Eclipse needs a CVS server to talk to, that's why its asking for
server/port/protocol. You could use that directory as your project's
directory, but then you don't have the CVS features that you probably
want to have (revisions, versions, branches etc.)

Hmm, seems that i have to use stand-alone CVS client to deal with.
Okay, thanks for reply :)

Do you have a CVS server running or not? I'm getting a bit confused what
the problem actually is :)

well, i don't have CVS server running because i don;t need it to be running,
but you know CVS client may deal with the local filesystem. So i guess that
eclipse may deal only with CVS server, right?

I added the cvspserver service to inetd.conf, it seems to work now, but i
don't understand why i have to start CVS server if everything works fine
without it (but not in Eclipse). For example, IntelliJ IDEA works fine with
this project, without any CVS server running.

Eugeny,

The reason Eclipse doesn't work with local CVS repositories is because
Elipse has its own CVS client while other tools typically access CVS by
invoking the CLI tool. Early on in Eclipse, it was decided that the
benefits of having a client in Eclipse (i.e. tools such as the repo
browser and sync view) outweighed the disadvantages (some unsupported
features such as local connection method).
