I am looking for CVS on my Karmic Koala. Server as well as client (Gnome GUI please).
Any suggestions?

Dumb question, but why do you want CVS?

The main reason I can think of is if you have a legacy CVS repository that you want to access from your new setup, but even with that, I would just convert to SVN

Promise you wont laugh. I find the SVN folder structure very confusing!
Compared to that CVS seems so "crisp"

Is it the whole trunk/branches/tags thing? If so, for a personal repository, you don't have to follow that. In my personal svn repository I use a two level base directory - the first is a major project category such as "java", "php", "r", etc. The second level is usually my Eclipse project name.

I only use the trunk/branches/tags for formal work projects.

As others have said, you don't *have* to use the whole branches/tags/trunk model. With SVN you can do whatever you like.
And you can change your mind.

I agree that the famous Red Bean book's coverage of this topic leaves a lot to be desired. But as a package, SVN is really better than CVS. Well worth the time to understand the basics.

While the standard Ubuntu packages include SVN, both the client and server, and you can use it either directly or with the Apache plugin. However, the 9.04 Ubuntu libraries don't have the latest and greatest release of SVN, so if you are having problems with merge, you should upgrade. 9.10 has SVN 1.6.5, which is current enough to just use.

@Peter,Pat
Yes the trunk,branch tag structure is what confuses me. However, I was not aware it is configurable. Will check it out.

@Pat,
I already am on 9.10 (Karmic Koala)

Thanks guys.
