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.

FreeBSD might help you.

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.
