RE: [eclipse-dev] PROBLEMS Using CVS from Eclipse

Mr. Ardolino,

  I am not familiar with Eclipse-VCM, but I have seen this kind of error
before.  Can you perform checkout & checkin using the commandline CVS
client?  Are you familiar with the Cederquist Manual?  As I recall, it has a
section that deals with the very error messages you describe.  I believe
that your error may be unrelated to Eclipse.

  AFAIK, the CVS server has to read .cvsignore for most if not all
transactions.  Perhps your server is misconfigured?

Subject: [eclipse-dev] PROBLEMS Using CVS from Eclipse

I'm having some problems using CVS from Eclipse.
The fact is that I want to import a project into the CVS repository that is
on a Linux Server.  I configured the Repository Location using pserver as
connection type.  On the other hand I configured the cvspserver service on
the Linux machine.  I put my user/passwd correctly and finally y tried to
import the project using the "Team > Share Project"  feature.
Well...I've got an this error message:
Problem Occurred
The server reported warnings while performing the "cvs import" command.
And pressing the "<<Details" button I've got:
cvs server: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied.

I think is logic to get this message because I do not have permission to
put a file in /root/.

Why is Eclipse o CVS trying to put or look up this file in such place?

Doing the same operation as root is satisfactory at the beginning, but when
I try to "commit" I get this other message:
Problems encountered performing commit
cvs [server aborted]: cannot commit files as root

So ! I'm deadlocked ! Help me please!
Thank you!
