It is always wise to give an exact cut-n-paste of the error message
provided. The above error is NOT one that cvs generates. There is no
'filer' in any of the error messages.

The likely error is something closer to:

    "cannot find pre-commit filter `/path/to/my-pre-commit-script'

where /path/to/pre-commit/script should be what cvs read from the
CVSROOT/commitinfo file as pertaining to your repository.

It should NOT be related to where the lockfile is.

In a typical setup, I would expect a line like

my-pre-commit-script to exist in the CVSROOT/checkoutlist file of your
repository and for your repository to contain a CVSROOT/my-pre-commit-script
file as a result. Further, I would expect CVSROOT/commitinfo might have
a line like:

ALL    $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/my-pre-commit-script

in it (maybe DEFAULT instead of ALL, but something like it).

Finally, I would make sure that the my-pre-commit-script is both
executable and contains the pathname to an interpreter that exists if it
is not a program. That is, #!/usr/bin/perl rather than
#!/usr/local/bin/perl if it is a perl script and you have the former
path for perl that works rather than the latter.

Without a better understanding of your configuration, there is no way to
give you a better answer.

        Good luck,
