I've just started to use CVS, but I'm having a problem setting it all up.
My code is on my laptop, and I've setup a repository on my desktop in /cvs,
both are conected by a normal network. I've fiddled with /etc/inetd.conf
appropriatly on the desktop.
I created a user cvs, and gave it ownership of the repository.
In the repository I've created a writer file just containing just my
username (without @laptop). I've also added a passwd file containing:
The password was coppied from the /etc/shadow file.
Now I'm trying to enter my project. On the laptop I do:
This all works. From the directory with my code in, I try:
cvs import -b 0.0.1 -m "First entry to CVS" Serprot A1_0 Start
to which I get the reply:
cvs server: cannot make path to /cvs/:Serprot: Permission denied
So I guess this is a permissions thing, but where? I've tried altering the
writers entry to me@laptop, but then I couldn't login to cvs at all.
I've looked all over info cvs, but it seems a bit light on how to add new
Anyone any ideas?
