I'm wondering if there is a nice modern GUI for CVS under Linux, something that will make files comparison visual and easy ...

What tools have you found so far? How do they not measure up to what you want? (You did search your favorite Linux distro's packaging system, right?) Also try searching for "visual diff" tools. And why CVS? –  Roger Pate Feb 18 '10 at 17:01

Try either Cervisia or CrossVC.

There is for instance Meld:

Meld is a GNOME 2 visual diff and merge tool. It integrates especially well with CVS. The diff viewer lets you edit files in place (diffs update dynamically), and a middle column shows detailed changes and allows merges. The margins show location of changes for easy navigation, and it also features a tabbed interface that allows you to open many diffs at once.

Emacs has a very nice cvs package with PCL-CVS which offers pretty much anything one could want.

Eclipse's integrated CVS browser is spot-on, and it is cross-platform:
