This HOWTO provides info on the CVS repsitory used for the Linux VR project.


You can check out the latest source code through anonymous (pserver) CVS:

cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/linux-vr login
cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/linux-vr co linux

Just press Enter for the password (leave it blank). Updates from within the module’s directory do not need the -d parameter. Please contact a project admin to request write access to the repository.

This creates a “linux” directory right under wherever you were when you did the checkout command. I recommend that you rename it to “linux-vr”:

mv linux linux-vr

You can update your local sources from the Linux VR CVS repository:

cd linux-vr
cvs update

You can also browse the repository.


  1. If someone has a patch, let them post it to the list. We will all review it, and if it receives approval, an appropriate person will commit it.
  2. Once someone proves to be trustworthy and competent, by means of posting of quality patch(es), and can demonstrate a reasonable need for CVS write access, that person may apply for CVS write access. Those currently with write access will as a group consider the application, if they reach a consensus to approve the application, they will grant the applicant permission for write access.
  3. If someone who has write access proves to be untrustworthy or incompetent, then the others with write access will as a group consider revoking their permission for write access, and will make a decision of whether or not to revoke based on consensus.
