RCS is probably the most challenging part of a TWikiOnWindows setup.

If you use the GNU port, be sure to use RCS_LF_ONLY=1; if using Cygwin, use Cygwin binary mode filesystem mounts (see CookbookLineEndingProblems, or just use the now well-tested WindowsInstallCookbook)

*nix Setup Troubles

Setting up RCS on a *nix (Unix) system is no walk in the park for some either. [whine, whine, whine] That's been my roadblock to setting up Twiki. I ended up installing a less-usable wiki temporarily, until I can find someone to help me out with RCS.

Has anyone found or written better instructions for the newbie for compiling this source onto an ISP? I'll check back here, but dropping me an email would be great too. wink

You might like to try the RcsLite option for TWiki. Note that this requires a recent beta or alpha (i.e. get code from CVS). RcsLite avoids the need for RCS, instead equivalent functionality is implemented in Perl.
