So, I'm stuck maintaining the group's CVS server. After some configuration and restarting xinetd, I get a persmission denied error when connecting remotely.
"can't create directory /root/tmp/cvs-1234, permission denied."
Seems bizzare that it would want to work in the root temp directory. Everything has always worked before.

/etc/init.d/xinetd restart) as root, instead of how it happens during startup.

/etc/cvs/cvs.conffile looks like:
I hope someone might find that useful. I've seen lots of posts (after googling) on this.
