I'm using cvs with mandrake 8.1, and pserver
I've created a user and a group cvs, and create my repository in /home/cvs (=CVSROOT)
I've created the passwd file to set the differents cvs users attached to the system account cvs
I can connect from a client cvs, but i can't access the CVSROOT directory (for administrative files)
the messg is :
Updating CVSROOT
cvs server: failed to create lock directory for `/home/cvs/CVSROOT' (/home/cvs/CVSROOT/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs server: failed to obtain dir lock in repository `/home/cvs/CVSROOT'
cvs [server aborted]: read lock failed - giving up
And when i connect with the root system account, i can chekout the CVSROOT directory but
i can't commit files (msg= root cannot commit files)

How can i resolve this problem ?
Thanks for your help
