PostPosted: Wed Aug 21, 2013 12:17 pm    Post subject: [SOLVED] Looking for Source Control System Reply with quote

I'm soliciting suggestions from those more experienced. I am looking for a Source Control System where the server would be my existing Gentoo ebuild/distfile server and the clients would be one Windows XP system and two Gentoo systems all on the same LAN. This system will be used mostly for home development of cross-platform software using wxWidgets. No commercial development.

Requirements:

1. Easy versioning and branching capability.
2. Easy project creation.
3. Projects accessible from both Windows and Linux.
4. Easy setup for newbies.
5. Prefer GUI interface. Some initial command line setup is OK, but I don't want to remember the name of every file checked in and out.

There is only one user (me), but I may be working on the same file simultaneously on Windows and Linux. I really must be able to freeze working versions while continuing development. I've already screwed myself up copying files back and forth.

I've tried TortoiseCVS with setting up the server using the the Gentoo wiki, but Tortoise always says my syntax is wrong, probably because I don't understand the setup/command options.

I remember using RCS back in the early '90s and Visual Source Safe (client facilities) in the early '00s.

I recommend you git. It is available under windows and linux. Here [1] is a guide for it. I use this [2] branching model.

I created a repo on my server which is available via https and authentificationto store my stuff centralized.

ill second git, cvs and svn require client <-> server, instead of git <-> git.... i think bazaar is distributed also. git has a bit of extra overhead to learn but is worth it.

Yes, git is pretty much the standard these days and should support all your requirements.
