It happens if you change the repository location and try to access it from the previous working copy. Check CVS directory in working copy directory. There is an explicit point to the previous CVSROOT meaning. You should change it or checkout a new working copy.

Good luck,

I'm trying to access a CVS repository on a remote server, but it doesn't appear to be using the environment variables I've set. For example:

$ set | grep CVS

$ cvs status
cvs status: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [status aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

Apparently, CVS doesn't see that CVSROOT is set in my environment. Though it's not something I'd care to have to type all the time, I can get around this with the -d option, but this fails as well. Using the -t (trace) option shows why:

$ cvs -t -d :ext:address@hidden:/usr/src/cvsroot status
-> main loop with CVSROOT=:ext:address@hidden:/usr/src/cvsroot
-> Starting server: rsh -l my_id cvs server Connection refused
cvs [status aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)
-> Lock_Cleanup()

And I know of no command line options to replace CVS_RSH. Does anyone have any idea why CVS isn't picking up the environment variables? I'm seeing the exact same behavior on two systems. One is running CVS 1.11.2 on Redhat 9.0, the other is CVS 1.11.1p1 on Redhat 7.1.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
