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# 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
I'm thinking it must be something in your configuration, as I can't replicate the problem here.
I can, but only if I include the -rRELENG_4_10 part.
# setenv CVSROOT [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/ncvs # cvs co -rRELENG_4_10 src/COPYRIGHT cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot write /home/ncvs/CVSROOT/val-tags: Permission denied # cvs co src/COPYRIGHT U src/COPYRIGHT
If there were a file in the way, you'd see something like
# rm -rf src/ # mkdir src # touch src/COPYRIGHT # cvs co src/COPYRIGHT cvs checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory cvs [checkout aborted]: no repository
The reason why I think this is a server issue is that there is no reference to /home/ncvs on my system besides the CVSROOT variable. Of course, I might be doing something wrong, but I'm completely lost on what it could be.
Do you have "CVS_RSH=ssh" in your environment?
From man cvs:
CVS_RSH cvs uses the contents of this variable to determine the name of the remote shell command to use when starting a cvs server. If this variable is not set then `ssh' is used.
I take is that it doesn't matter if you've got it set or not, as long as you want to use ssh.
