Until recently, I've been able to log in as a normal user, use "su -l" to become root, edit a file, then check it in using CVS. Now, I get this message:
cvs [commit aborted]: 'root' is not allowed to commit files
The exact command that fails is:
-su(root)# cvs ci -F ~/tmp/ci.txt /etc/network/interfaces
I've tried adding a writers file in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/writers with these lines:
but the problem persists. Its acting like CVS can't find the original user name.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
