I've got a stange error message with cvs.
How did I install it: I installed it with apt-get from my Debian.

1) /etc/inetd.conf:
cvspserver stream tcp nowait.400 root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/cvs-pserver --allow-root=/var/lib/cvs
2) ls -l /var/lib
drwxrwsr-x    3 root     src          4096 Sep 29 20:15 cvs
3) cat /var/lib/cvs/CVSROOT/passwd
4) /var/lib/cvs/CVSROOT/writers
5) export of the user fly:
export CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/var/lib/cvs

The user fly can login without any troubles but when I do:
cvs import -m "Management Clients Companies project" mcc ostium start

I 've got an error message:
Fatal error, aborting.
cvsuser: no such user

What did I do wrong ! The user fly can login with I think writer privilege but can't create a project !!! Why, what is this error message ?

Thanks for any help.

I do have a hunch that the passwd file above is describing that when the
cvsuser "fly" logs into cvs, then cvs should change userid to the system
user "cvsuser", which doesn't exist in /etc/passwd.  Try adding the user
cvsuser in /etc/passwd, or use the "adduser" command to add the user.

Special thanks to Tobias who replied privately ans was right.

I add to do this too:
chown cvsuser /var/lib/cvs

Now, everythings seems to work correctly.
