Description Pawel Salek 2000-08-25 03:39:14 EDT
I have been trying to setup a test network CVS server with Kerberos GSS
authentication. I set up tickets, inetd.conf as described in cvs
documentation. I have tested also that :pserver: method was functional.

Trying to access CVS respository with :gserver: method crashes the client
on assertion
in src/client.c:1410. It seems (as far as I could understand, I am not
Kerberos expert) the server requests buffer size of order 24kB, while cvs
has fixed size buffer of max size 1024 bytes. 

I file it as cvs component bug (because it was cvs which dumped core) but I
wonder if it isn't really krb5 bug, because it is the server response which
seems wrong.
I use the krb5 from Redhat Errata. 
PS. cvs-1.10.7-7 doesn't build from src.rpm as non root.

I tested GSS authentication on IMAP, and it works.
I get reports in /var/log/messages that inetd dies on signal 1.  It is the
executed child,  not the main inetd, as far as I can tell.

The not-rebuilding-as-non-root problems should be fixed in the 7 release of
1.10.8.  The gserver assertion will need further debugging.
