CVS and terminal values
I'm trying to set up CVS on my workstation and I keep getting a number
of really annoying errors.
For starters, I can't seem to get $CVSROOT defined correctly for a
simple term window. I tried putting
into ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bashrc, ~/.profile
None of those worked. Right now I have to do it by hand :(
Once I do get $CVSROOT defined I still can do anything.
tallison@isengard:~$ cvs checkout foo
cvs checkout: Updating foo
cvs checkout: failed to create lock directory for `/var/lib/cvs/foo'
(/var/lib/cvs/foo/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs checkout: failed to obtain dir lock in repository `/var/lib/cvs/foo'
cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed - giving up
I have added myself to the group src and logged in again to make sure
that the group assignment is applied. Essentially what I'm seeing is
that I cannot add any directories to the base project directory of foo.
I would rather not rewrite everything in CVS as 777 permissions, but I
don't see what's the problem.
