Using CVS GUI client on Mandrake 10.0


I am trying to use a GUI CVS client on Mandrake 10.0. I've tried Cervisia, TkCVS, gCVS. When I try to do something, a message similar to the followin will be given.

cvs -f -q update -d -P 'AnalysisAndDesign/Dummy' 2>&1
cvs update: authorization failed: server rejected access to /home/cvs/repository for user cvs
cvs update: used empty password; try "cvs login" with a real password
[Exited with status 1]

I have set the user as neranjana in the .bash_profile file.
export CVSROOT

Then I login using cvs login.
But the system still tries to use cvs as the user. How can I change this? Is there any file where I can specify the user? Or is this a bug in the CVS binary in my distribution? However, I can use Java CVS clients such as Eclipse.
