CVS login aborted - no such file or directory


I'm currently learning CVS, and I'm trying to login for the first time. I've already set CVSROOT in the .bashrc file using the command "export CVSROOT=/home/aaron/cvs/local", which seems fine. When I try to login, though, I get an error "cvs [login aborted]: /home/aaron/cvs/local/CVSROOT: No such file or directory". This directory does exist, and I've made sure I'm logged in as myself (aaron, not root). I can also echo out CVSROOT, so I know it does exist. Anyone have an idea as to the cause of this?

What does 'ls -ald /home/aaron/cvs/local/CVSROOT' show?
