LinuxBIOS was using arch before subversion. Those older instructions are here: [[Download LinuxBIOS oldarch]].
 
+
LinuxBIOS keeps its development tree in a [http://www.gnuarch.org/ GNU arch] repository. You may need to install GNU arch to be able to download the latest tree. You can find a tar of GNU arch at ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gnu-arch/.
+
 
+
If you do not want to use GNU arch, please have a look at the Snapshots section below.

+
You can check it out as follows (instead of tla you can also use baz):
+
 
+
<code><pre>
+
  % # get gpg key for checking signed archives
+
  % wget \
+
      http://www.linuxbios.org/data/arch/linuxbios-developers-keyring.gpg
+
  % gpg --import < linuxbios-developers-keyring.gpg
+
  % # now do some one time registrations
+
  % tla my-id "John Doe <doe@example.com>" # Add your email address here
+
  % tla register-archive \
+
        ftp://openbios.org/pub/arch/linuxbios@linuxbios.org--devel
+
  % # now check out the archive
+
  % tla get linuxbios@linuxbios.org--devel/freebios--devel--2.0 freebios2
+
</pre></code>

== (obsolete) Prerequisites ==
+
If you want to get write access to the LinuxBIOS repository, you need the following:
+
 
+
* GnuPG key (can be created with gpg --gen-key)
+
* SSH v2 key (can be created with ssh-keygen -t dsa)
+
 
+
== (obsolete) Gentoo users ==
+
 
+
If you are running Gentoo you are going to need to `emerge tla`
+
 
+
== (obsolete) Preparation ==
+
 
+
* Get the arch key I created for the import from CVS.
+
 
+
  $ wget 'http://www.linuxbios.org/data/arch/linuxbios-developers-keyring.gpg'
+
  $ gpg --import linuxbios-developers-keyring.gpg
+
 
+
*  Prepare GNU arch for LinuxBIOS
+
 
+
  # Set your default id:
+
  $ tla my-id "John Doe <doe@example.com>"
+
 
+
  # similar to cvs login, tell gnuarch where to find the archive:
+
  $ tla register-archive sftp://lxbios@openbios.org/srv/arch/linuxbios@linuxbios.org--devel
+
 
+
  # prepare gnupg signature checking:
+
  $ mkdir -p ~/.arch-params/signing
+
  $ echo "gpg --clearsign" > ~/.arch-params/signing/\=default
+
  $ echo "gpg --verify-files -" > ~/.arch-params/signing/\=default.check
+
 
+
== (obsolete) Check out ==
+
 
+
  $ tla get linuxbios@linuxbios.org--devel/freebios--devel--2.0 freebios2
+
 
+
== (obsolete) Working on the tree ==
+
 
+
Now you can start editing the files. The following applies for symlinks and directories as well.
+
 
+
*  New files are added with
+
  $ tla add filename
+
 
+
* files can also be renamed using:
+
  $ tla mv fileA fileB
+
 
+
* files can also be renamed using:
+
  $ tla mv fileA fileB
+
 
+
* files can be deleted:
+
  $ tla rm file
+
 
+
When you're done editing/patching:
+
 
+
* Look at your changes:
+
  $ tla changes
+
or
+
  $ tla changes --diffs
+
 
+
* Check the tree:
+
 
+
You can do consistency checks on your tree with:
+
  $ tla tree-lint
+
  $ tla inventory -Bu
+
 
+
Check if your tree is current:
+
  $ tla missing
+
 
+
This will output a list of missing changesets in your local tree, ie:
+
 
+
  patch-15
+
  patch-16
+
  patch-17
+
  patch-18
+
 
+
In which case you should do a
+
  $ tla update
+
before you commit.
+
 
+
== (obsolete) Commiting ==
+
 
+
Write a changelog. PLEASE DO NOT CREATE EMPTY CHANGELOG MESSAGES:
+
  $ $EDITOR $( tla make-log )
+
 
+
Commit your local tree
+
  $ tla commit
+
 
+
This will ask you for your gpg passphrase (and possibly your ssh key
+
password if you set one). Then it will create a new revision in the
+
repository.

To update the mirror with the most recent contents:

Introduction

LinuxBIOS keeps its development tree in a Subversion repository. If you do not want to use Subversion, please have a look at the Snapshots section below.

Anonymous access

You can check it out as follows:

 $ svn co svn://openbios.org/repos/trunk/LinuxBIOSv2

or

 $ svn co svn://openbios.org/repos/trunk/LinuxBIOSv1


Developer Access

Access for developers is very similar to anonymous access. Just add your subversion username as follows when checking out the repository:

 $ svn co svn://<username>@openbios.org/repos/trunk/LinuxBIOSv2

Subversion has commands very similar to CVS.

Source code browsing

You can also browse the LinuxBIOS subversion repository online.

Snapshots

There is an archive of snapshots available at snapshots.linuxbios.org. There is a .bz2 tar file that gets updated when the repository changes. Older snapshots are maintained as well.

You can download the most current snapshot directly.

Old versions

LinuxBIOS was using arch before subversion. Those older instructions are here: Download LinuxBIOS oldarch.
