I've been trying to get a reliable answer on using CVS to backup my digital images to a linux box on the LAN and/or an external drive or RAID array. I'm certain there are more than a few solutions, but I have yet to find them.
What I have found is Using Digital Still Photography Devices with GNU/Linux, which has lots of info about mounting USB devices and media readers onto your linux filesystem.
This is all in preparation of my move into a larger room in this house, where I'll be able to set up my linux box. Right now it lives in the basement, unused, in perpetual sleep.
that's sooooo last year!
all of the k00l kids are using SVN these days :-)
...but it's installed on my Mac.
