CVS on Linux

Hi Chaps...

I was wondering if someone could help me on this. I was looking out for a version/ distro of Linux which can efficiently run CVS. I will have around 8-10 clients using the CVS from overseas, probably a few will be local. IOW, the CVS will be configured on the Linux box locally, but the users who use the CVS could be from a different geographic localtion.

If I were to go for a Desktop Linux, say Novell Desktop Linux, will it serve my purpose. If not, what distro will?

I tried to contact the Novell Customer Service, no answer...

I hope you will help...


Cheers

Just about any popular Linux distro has the option to install a cvs server.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Any of the popular Linux distributions will do just fine as the underlying operating system for a CVS server. It's the hardware and network resources that are more likely to be a bottleneck.
