Hi,

The steps are the same as before, so:

]$ sudo apt-get install cvs
]$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at nvclock.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/nvclock login
]$ cvs -z3  
-d:pserver:anonymous at nvclock.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/nvclock co  
-P nvclock
]$ cd nvclock
]$ ./autogen.sh
]$ ./configure
]$ make
]$ sudo make install

Thanks,
Roderick
