CVS - commit not working

CVS - commit not working

CVS - commit not working

Sorry, I'm new to the CVS thing...

I've set up a pserver and gotten that working. I can log in and checkout a file in a dir that I added to my cvs tree.

So, as a regular user I set my CVSROOT env to  ":pserver:<my login>@<my ip>:/usr/local/var/cvs" and then I'm able to log in with my passord.  From a subdir under my home dir, I issue cvs checkout module and it creates the module subdir and grabs the one file I put in there into that dir.  I edit the file, and just add a #test comment.  I issue cvs commit module and it prompts me for a comment and all that and it seems to work.  When I look into the actual CVSROOT on the server, I can see the file,v is updated, but the actual file, is not updated.  

Any clues?
