12.1.3 Troubleshooting CVS File permissions in repository

CVS will not overwrite the current repository file but replaces it with another one. Thus, write permission to the repository directory is critical. For every new repository creation, run the following to ensure this condition if needed.

     # cd /var/lib/cvs
     # chown -R root:src repository
     # chmod -R ug+rwX   repository
     # chmod    2775     repository  # if needed, this and subdirectory Execution bit

A file's execution bit is retained when checked out. Whenever you see execution permission problems in checked-out files, change permissions of the file in the CVS repository with the following command.

     # chmod ugo-x filename
