ok, you copy and paste this code into the terminal:
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@bzflag.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bzflag login
press enter and copy/paste this into terminal
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@bzflag.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bzflag co -P bzflag
then do
cd bzflag
then do these commands in this order:
./autogen.sh
./configure
/make
su- <rootpassword>
/make install

make sure you have CVS, configure, and automake installed, along with other things bzflag needs.

would you want to keep another version installed side by side with this one, you may want to avoid these last two I think. not exactly sure.

Yeah, I was interested in installing the 2.1.11 just for the fun of it, but I don't want to uninstall the current stable version.

First of all, don't follow those make instructions. If you are compiling on Ubuntu, you should be using checkinstall as the last step (you'll have to apt-get checkinstall before you use it). Also, if you want to keep both versions, use a make target to install it in a specific directory.

Second, if you just want a binary, the Debian repos will probably work. There may be unforeseen problems, as Ubuntu is NOT Debian, despite public opinion. You can try here though: http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=8793

Yes, you must use sudo. Sudo elevates your privileges to root which are needed to install packages with apt-get (did you notice the "are you root?"?).

I don't know why you don't want cvs available to all users. It is perfectly safe and the point of software is to have it for everyone. You could technically install it just for yourself, but you'll have to learn a lot and it would have no benefits (meaning you'll need take care of cvs's dependencies, download the cvs source, and compile it - it's not fun).

You could get around that by installing cvs in your local account, but it won't be particularly easy (I could easily do it, but with your Linux experience... you'd need a walkthrough...).

Hmmm... one thing, i've started it, and new mountains, new logo... But, i do find server, it finds the 2.0.x servers! and it joins it! It shows for 2.0.9... Wasnt it supposed to be a new protocol? Or, does anyone knows a 2.1.x server address & port? if so, could u tell me, i envy trying it!

i did exactly what is shown upper. i did:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@bzflag.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bzflag login

Then,
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@bzflag.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bzflag co -P bzflag

Then ./autogen.sh then, ./configure and finally, /make

I didnt do make install cause i didnt want to delete my other bz. The logo changed, the admin sound too, and the mountains. But i see and can play on all 2.0.x servers. i see the normal serverlist, and when i do /clientquery, it shows as 2.0.9

Make sure you don't have an existing CVS checkout in the same directory.

did you type in bzflag in the terminal, or did you go do ./<bzflagscvsfolder>/src/bzflag/bzflag?

cd to your bzflag directory, and run ./src/bzflag/bzflag
