Setting up a CVS repository


Hello all,
I am trying to set up a CVS repository. Everything goes fine. I want to create the repostory from an existing tree. So when i tried this command:
cvs import -m "Malayalam Editor" yoyodyne/uniedit yoyo start
it shows errors like this:

No conflicts created by this import
************************************************** ************************************************** *********
I have tried to add some other package also. But in that case there are no inner directories and it was successful.

the permissions of my cvs repository is ':
drwxrwxrwx 5 root cvsadmin 4096 Jan 15 11:07 cvsroot

Please help me
TIA

N yoyodyne/uniedit/configure
Try this:
Code:
mkdir /home/cvsroot/yoyodyne;mkdir /home/cvsroot/yoyodyne/uniedit
Then do
Code:
cvs import -m "Malayalam Editor" yoyodyne/uniedit yoyo start
again.


Good luck.

My local CVS repository has permissions drwxrwxrwt (ie, sticky bit on). Not a clue if that makes a difference, but you can try:
chmod 1777 /home/cvsroot
