After following the instructions in a previous mail from John Eaton, and
sucessefuly checking out octave, I tried today a 'cvs update' that
failed. My error?

bash-2.02# pwd
bash-2.02# ls -l
total 6
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     sys          512 Oct 23 18:47 CVS
drwxr-xr-x  18 root     sys         2048 Oct 21 20:28 octave
bash-2.02# cvs update

? octave/src/DOCSTRINGS
? octave/test/Makefile
? octave/test/octave.sum
? octave/test/octave.log
cvs server: Updating .
cvs server: failed to create lock directory in repository `/cvs':
Permission den
cvs server: failed to obtain dir lock in repository `/cvs'
cvs [server aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

Can someone help?
