I want to use version control on my project and see that eclipse supports it via cvs. I've never used cvs, but I installed it and managed to get it set up.
I imported some stuff into a repository and checked it out, at the comand line.
Now I have not figured out how to get eclipse to recognize anything that is not reached via a web like connection.
I've tried more things than I can remember and spent hours on the web.
I could put my repository on a second local computer - not a bad idea - but if I can it would be nice if I could start by having in on my machine.
Can someone point me to a description of how this is done?
The "CVS Repository>New>Repository location" screen has rejected all my attempts to tell it that the file is local.
I believe it is trying to make a FTP connection.
I tried to direct it to anonymous@localhost/srv/csvroot/tahoo and it says "connection refused"
Ditto when I give it my user name and password
It rejects file/// notation
i also tried my computer name "knox.knox-data" - same deal.
Can anyone lead me out of my confusion??
