Please check if you have write permissions on the repository or write
permissions in the directory where the locks are stored. See the config
file in the CVSROOT directory in your cvs home for the lock directory.
If it is not set in the config file, the default value is the same as
the repository directory. You need to have write permissions in the
locks directory.

Subject: Failed to create Lock Directory

When I run cvs commit I get the following message:

cvs server: failed to create lock directory in repository 
`/cvsroot/terraex/terraex': Permission denied
cvs server: lock failed - giving up
cvs [server aborted]: lock failed - giving up

The cvs repository is on and I can run update and add 
fine. I'm not the developer who started the cvs repository, I have been 
added to the project lately and despite trying several times, I 
constantly get this message. It does get to the stage of examining 
directories, asking for my password, asking for a log entry and then 
printing ?'s for a few files.

Is this a CVS, Sourceforge, or "Me" issue?

Running cvs 1.10.7 on Linux 2.2.14

Any help would be much appreciated.
