Hello Larry,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I have checked my /var/log/everything/current (after sending a USR1
signal to my master metalog process, gotta deinstall metalog >:( ) , and
this is what it says:

Nov  7 00:18:38 [xinetd] START: cvspserver pid=15084 from=
Nov  7 00:18:38 [xinetd] FAIL: cvspserver address from=

So this means that cvspserver can't start... but what am I doing wrong

Any ideas?

Check your syslog for error messages from xinetd and/or CVS.  If there
aren't any, try running xinetd in debug mode.  Check the permissions on
CVS.  Try telnetting to port 2401 (telnet localhost 2401) -- if the
connection immediately closes, then either xinetd is unable to start CVS
or CVS immediately dies.  If the connection stays open, try hitting
return -- you should get an error message from CVS.
