Description Chafik Driouichi 2003-12-12 11:17:35 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
When I try to cvs a package from a kserver, I get this message:

cvs import: CVSROOT is set for a kerberos access method but your
cvs import: CVS executable doesn't support it.
cvs [import aborted]: Bad CVSROOT:`:kserver:atlas-sw.cern.ch:/atlascvs'.

I tried to export CVSROOT=:kserver:atlas-sw.cern.ch:/atlascvs, and
tried to make a cvs of my package, and got the same message. It looks
like cvs doesn't support kserver. Could you please have a look at this

Best regards,

This was intentional (people who know this better than I do strongly
discourage use of Kerberos IV), but I have no big compulsion not to
reverse that.  Might I ask why gserver is not an acceptable alternative?

Closing NOATBUG due to reproducer inactivity. Please reopen if you can provide
more information so that I can fix it.
