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. Using CVS, you can checkout the Linux/MIPS source tree with the following commands where you insert linux, libc, gdb or faq for <module>.

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>


Via cvsweb, you have direct access to the new AX.25 sources, and a few other projects hosted in the same CVS archive. The intuitive interface allows you to follow the development at the click of your mouse.

CVS over Rsync

The CVS repository can also be fetched using rsync:

rsync -avz --progress --stats rsync:// /local/directory
rsync -avz --progress --stats rsync:// /local/directory

You can then check it out using:

cvs -d/local/directory co linux  (optionally, throw in -r linux_X_Y_Z for a specific branch)
