Oh, duh, I forgot to mention how to actually get the code from CVS. :)

To check out the code:

        cvs -d :pserver:anonymous anoncvs gnome org:/cvs/gnome login

When it asks for a password, just hit enter.  Then:

        cvs -d :pserver:anonymous anoncvs gnome org:/cvs/gnome co beagle
That will check out the code into a directory named "beagle".  Then,
instead of running "configure" like you normally would when building
from a tarball, run "":

        ./ --prefix=/opt/beagle --sysconfdir=/etc
(or whatever.  Generally I install beagle into a separate prefix, so
that it doesn't interfere with my existing installation.  The
--sysconfdir option is so that the autostart system I mentioned in the
last email will work.)

You may need to install some development packages to build beagle.  One
that seems to trip people up is that gmime-sharp is included in the
gmime package on most Linux distributions.  At least, it is on SUSE.
Sadly this step varies from distro to distro, so you're somewhat on your
own here. :(

Then, build the source:

and install it:

        make install
(You will probably need to be root to "make install".)

And then you can run all the beagle programs from the source directory.
So you can just go into the beagled directory and run "./beagled --fg"
to start the daemon.

Hope this helps,
