 +====== Installing SmartCVS ======
  
 +SmartCVS is a commercial cross-platform CVS application written in Java.  It is the best CVS client I've found for Linux. ​ I use it, even though it's a commercial product, because I need a good CVS client in order to get work done.  You can download SmartCVS from http://​www.syntevo.com/​smartcvs/​.
 +
 +===== Prerequisites =====
 +
 +You'll need a fairly recent version of the Sun JRE, so install that first.
 +
 +[[Installing the Sun JRE]]
 +
 +===== Instructions =====
 +
 +Download the generic SmartCVS archive for Linux.
 +
 +Move to the directory where you would like to install it, such as /etc.
 +
 +  cd /etc
 +
 +Extract the file.
 +
 +  sudo tar xvf /<​path>/​smartcvs-generic-<​version>​.tar.gz
 +
 +Change to the bin directory.
 +
 +  cd smartcvs-<​version>/​bin
 +
 +Edit the smartcvs.sh file
 +
 +  sudo vim smartcvs.sh
 +
 +Change the JAVA_HOME line to point to your Sun JRE directory.
 +
 +  JAVA_HOME=/​etc/​jre1.6.0_03/​
 +
 +Optionally, create a symbolic link to smartcvs.sh in /usr/bin.
 +
 +  ln -s /​etc/​smartcvs-<​version>/​bin/​smartcvs.sh /​usr/​bin/​smartcvs
 +
 +Now, you can just execute //​smartcvs//​ or the smartcvs.sh file.
