I am trying to get the latest changes to the lib from cvs, but when I enter: export CVSROOT=:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot into the console as root, the prompt comes right back without any action or message. I'm not all that familiar with cvs, but I had expected a login prompt. Am I missing something?
That is normal. All you did was assign a value to a variable and export it to the environment (using a Bourne type shell). "echo $CVSROOT" will show you its value.
