Since the update to the java cvs plugin, I can't do anonymous readonly cvs update anymore. It fails with this message:
cvs update: Updating .
cvs update: failed to create lock directory for `/var/cvs' (/var/cvs/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs update: failed to obtain dir lock in repository `/var/cvs'
cvs [update aborted]: read lock failed - giving up
Note: Initial checkout after cleaning workspace works, only updates don't work.
The is also another problem which may be a side effect: I see hanging around cvs server processes which only terminate after jenkins is shut down.
We are running cvs pserver from xinetd like this: cvs -f --allow-root=/var/cvs pserver
CVSROOT is ":pserver:anonymous@cvs:/var/cvs"
Anonymous readonly updates have always worked with jenkins, as well es they do with Eclipse or Netbeans.
Did I miss something?
