check the CVSROOT variable and permission of the same..
Also check the environment variable $CVSIGNORE if it points to
/root/.cvsignore. reassign the variable as $HOME/.cvsignore for individual

hope this works

Hi guys,

I have set up a remote CVS repository on RED HAT linux 6.2 machine. I am
able to login, import modules etc. when I try to check out a module I get
this error.

cvs server: cannot open /root/.cvsignore:Permission denied

cvs [server aborted]: can't chdir(/root): Permission denied

I have given the right permission to the repository directories (I am able
to login and Import) but have no idea what this is about. I cannot allow
normal users to access /root which is what the CVS server wants. Whereas
when I login as root and try to checkout the module, I get through. Thanks
in adavnce.
