removed the CCs to @postgresql.org as I don't think this is their fault,
however you can include them as cc in your reply if you think it will help you.

The ls and rls commands are used to list files and

in to the repository for getting the listing of the same.
`cvs ls` and `cvs rls` I suspect are CVSNT commands, so if you are having
trouble with those you will get better help in the CVSNT list.
please try running `cvs --version` and report that too, if you need to ask
I use the command "cvs login" to connect to the repository
but instead of connecting to the local repository it is
connecting to the postgreSQL repository,
I am a little confused by this statement.
I assume you mean that if you just `cvs login` it is connecting to the
postgreSQL cvs repo. The reason(s) are likely that either in your shell
environment $CVSROOT=the postgresql repo, or you were in a sandbox directory
checked out from the postgresql repo.
but when I specify the command ->
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/u01/Installs/cvsrepository/cvsroot login
where /u01/Installs/cvsrepository/cvsroot is the
repository path, root is the username and
inblr-kuriakcc.eu.uis.unisys.com is the hostname
it is asking for the password,
Assumption on inblr-kuriakcc.eu.uis.unisys.com someone has:
A) ran `cvs -d /u01/Installs/cvsrepository/cvsroot init`
B) configured [x]inetd correctly
If you search the list you will probably get the (right) impression that
pserver is not very secure, but running your cvs pserver process on the server
as the root user is probably asking for trouble.
now I am not sure what is the password,
it is the machine root account password, so be real careful.
Also IIRC CVS does not allow you to login as root.
can anyone please tell me the method to change the CVS password,
inblr-kuriakcc.eu.uis.unisys.com:/u01/Installs/cvsrepository/cvsroot such that
appropriate normal system users have access to read and write to that structure.
2) configure the system to have appropriate normal system users, i.e., those
users have group file settings as described in the File permissions section of
3) use the normal system method for changing a user's password.
so that I can change the password and get connected to the local repository.
Will this repository only ever be accessed by users logged on and setting at
If so, you might be better off using :fork: or :local:, and :ext: with
CVS_RSH=ssh would be better still (read the manual on configuring ssh though).
