you're not in a 'working copy'
cvs has no knowledge of the directory structure
or where to import it into the repository.

Hi there.

I've already got my cvs maintaining a project, but now i want to add

The listing in /usr/local/cvsroot is as follows:

address@hidden:~/public_html/rost$ ls -l /usr/local/cvsroot/
total 8
drwxrwxr-x   3 root     hackers      4096 Sep  2 01:59 CVSROOT
drwxrwxr-x   2 root     hackers      4096 Sep 10 18:07 irclog

So, that should be in order. irclog is the project I already got under
cvs-control. $CVSROOT is set:

address@hidden:~/public_html/rost$ echo $CVSROOT

And now I want to add another project. As the manual says I first cd
the directory I want to put under cvs-control. This is the directory
~/public_html/rost. And then I perform the command:

address@hidden:~/public_html/rost$ cvs import -m "Rost hjemmeside" rost
marius nothing
cvs import: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [import aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

Can anyone please explain to my why that fails?

Sorry in advance if this is an old question. :)
