I am trying to update my source using CVS, as CVSup is not an option in my current environment. I am running FreeBSD 4.10.
Below are the commands that I am entering in order to perform the update, but for some reason, I am getting the following error when attempting to update my source:

lx1005# pwd
lx1005# setenv CVSROOT [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/ncvs
lx1005# cvs co -rRELENG_4_10 src
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot write /home/ncvs/CVSROOT/val-tags: Permission denied
lx1005# whoami

These commands show that I am in the /usr/src directory (which is where I should be), and that I am the root user.
I was informed by another user that this was a server error, but I can't seem to get around it no matter which anoncvs server I use.

Please advise.

I'm thinking it must be something in your configuration, as I can't replicate the problem here.

Do you have "CVS_RSH=ssh" in your environment?

Computers are like Air Conditioners: They stop working properly if you open Windows.

Heh...if only people would build houses without them. But they like the look of Windows, methinks...
