Oh, I'm sorry.
I'd downloaded an Owl-1.0-release-i386.iso.gz, installed a system from it
and trying to do an update. From /usr/src/world/Makefile:

        test "`id -u`" != "0" # CVS checkout must not be done as root
        mkdir -p native
        cd native && cvs co -P $(if $(TAG),-r
$(TAG) -d $(BRANCH) )$(MODULE)

option -d is mine;

this produces an error:

fisher@elf:~/cvs$ cvs co -P
-r Owl-1_0-release -d Owl-1_0-release Owl
cvs [server aborted]: cannot write /cvs/CVSROOT/val-tags: Permission denied

AFAIK, this is a server-side error.

few minutes ago I'd tried a simple sentence without explicit declaration of
-r and -d options, and it's work!
Why I can not update 1_0-release ?

Please forgive me my stupidness, if it has a place

Best wishes,
