cvs problem

Help

    Been getting the following for the past two days:

    "cvs update: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied"

    This does not happen with another cvs project that I use (MPlayer).  Something misconficured on the mplayerplug-in cvs server perhaps?  I'm not familiar enough with cvs to pinpoint it.  Some suggest chmodding /root to a+r on the cvs server but I'm sure there's another more secure way.  Whatever it is, I can't see anything that can be done from the client side to fix this problem.

    Thanks

      Works for me.. you should contact sourceforge about this anyway as I don't have any control over the CVS server..

      Here is the export anonymous script I use

      > more export_anon
      rm -rf mplayerplug-in
      cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/mplayerplug-in export -D "1 second ago" mplayerplug-in

      All right thanks Kevin.  I will get in touch with sourceforge.  Regards.
