It gets a bit stranger.

Instead of using rsync -av to make a copy of the repository, i tried
cp -Rp

After the copy , i made the directory a symlink to its location on the
new drive.

This time updates worked!  but add/commits failed.


instead of a softlink you might try:
mount --bind /new/repo/location/ /old/repo/location/

and see if it works...

which cvs version is on Ubuntu 8?

in the cvs News file
"Changes from 1.11.9 to 1.11.10:
* CVSROOTs which contain a symlink to a real repository should work.

And here I was thinking that I recalled the devs taking that out in the 11 series because of some security concern.
