Hi. I added a group called 'somegroup' and a user to that group, called "test". I chowned project/ (within /var/lib/cvs) to 'somegroup'. My user can read, exec and create files in project/ but still I get "permission denied.." "failed to create lock file /var/lib/cvs/project/#cvs.lock". What am I missing here? The other project dirs works just fine just by having them owned by cvs, and having the users be a part of the cvs group. There's something fundamental I fail to see. /var/lib/cvs drwxrwsr-x 16 root cvs 4096 Aug 13 12:14 . drwxrwsr-x 18 censur somegroup 4096 Jul 9 16:56 project/ /etc/group: somegroup:x:1035:test Thanks in advance.
