    CVS error


    Hi,

    I have a CVS server setup on RHEL 3.0 AS. The version of CVS is 1.12.12.
    When I try to import sources into the repository I get the following error.
    cvs [import aborted]: attempt to import the repository
    Why do I get this error and how do I eliminate it?
    Any answers on this will be of great help.

    you need to execute this command from outside the CVSROOT directory or any of its sub directory.
    $ cvs import -m. foo foo initial

    create foo anywhere outside and then cd foo
    and execute.
