Cannot checkout a branch

Cannot checkout a branch

Cannot checkout a branch

Hello Support,

I have a CVS repository with several modules , all with head branches and sub branches. I can checkout an entire module , but not just a branch , as root. The repos I have is not running pserver and have no cvspass file  , can anyone help me to give all access to checkout all .... Or should I setup the whole pserver thing ?

Please cna you help me .....

RE: Cannot checkout a branch

It might just be me misunderstanding what you are asking but what's going wrong?
Are you doing a cvs co -r<branch name> <module list>? cause that seems to me like all you'd need.
Or is it the fact that you can do this as a user but not when logged in as root?
