hello larry, thanks a lot for the help.

your last post gave me a hint. so the system is a SLES10 machine, but
it is using hacc (i.e. high accessibility computer center) i'll contact
the system administrator.
there are some filesystems mounted from elsewhere.
there is a ro filesystem with the system stuff and changes for the
individual machine are put "on top" of this system rw (maybe that is
the reason, i'll ask the sysadmin about)


> mount
/ram/union on / type unionfs (rw,dirs=/ram/changes=rw:/=ro)
/dev/sda2 on /tmp type ext2 (rw)
ascc-fsP:/vol/vol_home on /home type nfs (rw,sync,addr=
ascc-fsP:/vol/vol_data/www on /srv/www type nfs

> ls -ld /tmp
drwxrwxrwt 516 root root 16384 2006-11-14 09:15 /tmp

> ls -ld /
drwxr-xr-x 37 root root 4096 2006-11-14 07:48 /

so, in my opinion user "snm" should be able to read and execute all
directories above /tmp
> cvs version
on /tmp also yields the error.
cvs [version aborted]: cannot get working directory: No such file or

since we use the rpm version of cvs i do not have any idea how to
debug. could you give us a hint?

best regards
