I have a dedicated Ubuntu 8.04 server that I would like to set up a CVS repository on. I have followed various guides to try to set this up and always get stuck at the same point.

$ cvs -d :pserver:pcm@localhost:/cvsrepo checkout .cvs [checkout aborted]: could not get working directory: Function not implemented

I have set up the server two different ways, one using cvs and xinetd to run the server, and currently I am trying the cvs/cvsd method. Both ways I am able to start the server and log into the server using a local account or a cvs created account. Once I try to check out or import anything I get the error.

In my current attempt I am not using a local account, but a cvsd generated username/password.

I am on CVS version 1.12.13.

Here is the trace:

$ cvs -t -d :pserver:pcm@localhost:/cvsrepo checkout .

-> main loop with CVSROOT=/cvsrepo
-> safe_location( where=(null) )

Let me know what other information is needed. I feel like this is just some small permissioning problem that has been left out.
