just trying to get my work environment for teo set up again and I can't 
update or even get a fresh checkout from CVS

adrian$ cvs -d:ext:adrinux at tempest.evolt.org:/var/lib/cvs checkout weo_theme
cvs checkout: warning: cannot write to history file 
/var/lib/cvs/CVSROOT/history: Permission denied
cvs checkout: Updating weo_theme
cvs checkout: failed to create lock directory for `/var/lib/cvs/weo_theme' 
(/var/lib/cvs/weo_theme/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs checkout: failed to obtain dir lock in repository `/var/lib/cvs/weo_theme'
cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

Looking around it seems /var/lib/cvs is all in the dkaufman group:
drwxrwsr-x   9 root     dkaufman 4.0K Aug 17  2005 cvs/

adrinux at tempest:/var/lib$ ls -al cvs
total 36
drwxrwsr-x   9 root  dkaufman 4096 Aug 17  2005 .
drwxr-xr-x  25 root  root     4096 Mar 19  2007 ..

drwxrwsr-x   3 neuro dkaufman 4096 Jun 29  2006 weo_theme

Is cvs able to read it's own repository, do these permissions need tweaking?

I really wanted to do the basic theme upgrade stuff on teo today...
