RE: moving server location continued

Okay, I got that problem fixed..  I had changed some other settings on the
server that apparently required a reboot.  After rebooting, the /root
message went away.  However, now I have another problem :)

I do a cvs login, and everything seems to work ok.  But when I want to do a
checkout/release/update/etc, I'm getting this message:

cvs update: used empty password; try "cvs login" with a real password

now, I just did a cvs login, and typed in a real password :)  I re-copied
the password to the CVSROOT/passwd file to make sure it was ok and
It doesn't give me an error when I do a login, only if I try to do something
after that.
I've searched the archives for information about this "real password"
message, but haven't been able to find anything as of yet..

See "Trouble making a connection to a CVS server" in the manual.  If you
still have questions, see the archives of this list (;
this is *the* most frequently asked question about CVS.
