Need help !

I have been trying to install CVSspam for our project and stuck in checking in 
commitinfo file.

Below are the lines that I added in commitinfo file.

^cobra $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/record_lastdir.rb

# always allow commits to CVSROOT
^CVSROOT /bin/cat>/dev/null

# Invoke CVSspam lastdir script,

Error that I get while checking in commitinfo file.

cvs commit: cannot find pre-commit filter `/bin/cat>/dev/null': No such file or 
cvs commit: Pre-commit check failed

`cvs -ver` reports what?
which OS and distribution is your server on?
I think you need a space or two, like:
^CVSROOT /bin/cat >/dev/null
^CVSROOT /bin/cat > /dev/null

BTW after you fix that ... not sure if cat will return at all considering that it is not going to get any user input nor file input.
was this line for other than testing?
I would suggest /bin/true and /bin/false.

Now I'm not able to make any changes in commitinfo and probably in CVSROOT 

One of those rare instances where you actually have to use vi IN the repository.
i.e. you have to vi the commitinfo IN the repository.
and then from your checked out CVSROOT commit the same thing back in.

Appreciate your help on this.
