 Jason Farmer - CVS installation problems  3/30/2004; 4:19:48 PM (reads: 1150, responses: 4) After finally getting the rest of our system updated, I am trying to use CVS to install WK 1.9.03 or even Webwork2, and I wanted to add that is a great idea for keeping it up to date. I followed the instructions here:http://webwork.math.rochester.edu/docs/docs/howto/how_to_use_cvs2.html Once I set my environment variable, then skip down to the "cvs checkout -r rel-2-0-pr1 webwork-modperl" I get an error saying that the connection was refused to "webwork3.math.rochester.edu". Has the server changed, or am I still doing something incorrectly? - Jason <| Post or View Comments |>

 Michael Gage - Re: CVS installation problems  3/30/2004; 6:36:01 PM (reads: 1363, responses: 0) We've been changing how the CVS server works in order to try to make the cvs setup as easy as possible. I thought that the instructions at http://webhost.math.rochester.edu/webworkdocs/discuss/msgReader\$1599 still work, but the latest suggestions as to how to hook up to the cvs are at: specifically You want the read-only access instructions. We found that getting the ssh key file to work could be difficult (white space characters such as line endings could be different, but it would be difficult to tell) so we have been experimenting using the AnonCVSHelper script described on the page above. I suspect that is the problem --- something about your ssh key is not set up perfectly. Try this alternative method and see if you have more success. Hope this helps. Take care, Mike <| Post or View Comments |>

 Jason Farmer - Re: CVS installation problems  4/12/2004; 6:54:09 PM (reads: 1323, responses: 0) That worked perfectly. I have continued on with my setup but now I am getting an error when trying to access the WW 2.0 home page I guess it is (the page that resides if you simply go to http://yourserver.com/webwork2). Apache reports the following [error] Can't locate HTML/Entities.pm in @INC I believe that this is coming from a missing Perl component. Is this correct?<| Post or View Comments |>

 Michael Gage - Re: CVS installation problems  4/12/2004; 7:12:34 PM (reads: 1327, responses: 0) That's correct. You will probably find a number of such components missing. They can be downloaded and installed from CPAN. A partial list of other modules that will be needed is at The actual requirements vary, depending on what is already installed. --Mike <| Post or View Comments |>
