Running make uninstall and starting again from the 'configure' part of the guide still results in the same problem, is there something I can do to make sure I'm properly uninstalling everything?

Subject: SV: [rancid] Installation problem with rancid-cvs

I had the exact same problem, I reinstalled everything and then it worked fine.
I'm using CentOS5 but that should be more or less the same.

Emne: [rancid] Installation problem with rancid-cvs

I'm installing rancid on a new box running Fedora 10 and come across an issue when it comes time to run the rancid-cvs command.
I've been following this guide: http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/wiki/index.php/Quick_HOWTO_:_Ch1_:_Network_Backups_With_Rancid
First time around when I ran the rancid-cvs command I got an error about how cvs was unknown. A quick 'yum install cvs' fixed that up, so I ran it again. This time however I got no output at all, no error messages or confirmation text, just a new line and new command prompt, it didn't appear to do anything. 
I also checked to see if any of the folders had been created, they haven't.
Thinking it may have been an issue with cvs not being installed from the start, I did another recompile/reinstall, but got the same issue, when I ran rancid-cvs nothing appeared to happen at all.
How would I go about diagnosing/fixing this? Anyone familiar with the issue? I'm installing the latest a9 version.
