[ProgSoc] CVS server question
I'm setting up a CVS server on my linux box. I've followed the directions in
cvs.ps but had some trouble getting everything working. I've added the following
line to /etc/services:
I've added the following line to inetd.conf:
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs --allow-root=/home/robert/repository pserver
I then restarted inetd and tried to log in:
% cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/robert/repository login
(Logging in to email@example.com)
which seemed to be OK.
I then tried to checkout a module:
cvs checkout <module_name>
(I've also tried the explict -d ... as for login)
but no cigar, I get the following error message:
cvs server: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied
cvs [server aborted]: can't chdir(/root): Permission denied
Can anyone see what I've done wrong ??
Thanks in advance,
PS. I can do a local checkout with no problems.
