Many thanks Larry, I've pushed on past that problem... and now hit another one.

From the client end I'm getting the following (assuming a kerberos ticket has already been requested by now):

$ cvs -d :gserver:<hostname>:/var/cvs checkout test
cvs checkout: GSSAPI authentication failed: Unspecified GSS failure. Minor code may provide more information
cvs [checkout aborted]: GSSAPI authentication failed: Unknown code krb5 154

The kerberos server appears to authenticate fine...

May 15 15:32:00 dnsntp1 krb5kdc[6551](info): TGS_REQ (7 etypes {18 17 16 23 1 3 2}) <ip_address>: ISSUE: authtime 1179231979, etypes {rep=16 tkt=16 ses=16},<hostname> for krbtgt/<principal_name>

and the syslog on the cvs server gives the following

May 15 15:32:00 cvs xinetd[2170]: START: cvspserver pid=2219 from= May 15 15:32:00 cvs xinetd[2170]: EXIT: cvspserver status=1 pid=2219 duration=0(sec)

Unfortunately none of this is giving me a lot to go on in order to fix it, even google is drawing a blank... any further advice would be much appreciated..

You've misconfigured xinetd -- you've told it /var/cvs is your CVS
executable, but it's really your repository.  See the manual for more
