CVS has been retired at The anonymous CVS server will stay running so people can continue to do cvs diff and other operations but the content of the archive has been frozen on 2013-06-04. Similarly the cvsweb service will continue to run so links to it will stay valid but of course it won't pick up any further deelopment. All further development will happen on in git. The remainder of this page is mostly for historical purposes or for those few who have an actual need for it.

Anonymous CVS

For those who always want to stay on the bleeding edge, and want to avoid having to download patch files or full tarballs, we also have an anonymous CVS server. There are currently three amateur radio relevant modules in CVS archive, libax25, ax25-apps and ax25-tools.

cvs -d login
(Only needed the first time you use anonymous CVS, the password is "cvs")
cvs -d co <module>

The Git CVS server

Git now has aquired the ability to deliver it's content over the venerable CVS protocol. Inferior in endless ways, hated with passion and believed to be not very high in demand does not provide a git-cvs service.


Browse the changes

Via cvsweb, you have direct access to the new AX.25 sources. The intuitive interface allows you to follow the development at the click of your mouse.

Download as tar archive

Automatically generated on the fly as you download these tarballs are always the very latest - with all the risk and benefits of living on the bleeding edge. Building requires recent versions of automake and autoconf.

libax25 ax25-apps ax25-tools

Latest releases

The best choice for the OM who just wants to keep his system going along happily. Unlike the raw CVS snapshots above these tarballs don't require any messing with GNU autoconf and automake.

ax25-apps-0.0.8-rc4.tar.gz ax25-tools-0.0.10-rc4.tar.gz libax25-0.0.12-rc4.tar.gz

CVS copy via Rsync

The CVS repository can also be fetched using rsync like this:

rsync -avz --progress --stats rsync://<module> /local/directory
rsync -avz --progress --stats rsync:// /local/directory

You can then check it out using:

cvs -d/local/directory co <module>

Quarterly snapshots

We plan to automaticaly generate snapshots quarterly, downloadable as tar archives.

64-bit systems

Most 64-bit systems are setup such that libs go to /lib64 /usr/lib64, /usr/local/lib64. Autoconf won't notice this; it will default libdir to <prefix>/lib. This means installation will overwrite whatever is there possibly damaging 32-bit compat versions of the libraries installed there. To get autoconf to do the right thing in this case you must pass --libdir=<prefix>/lib64 when configuring.
