Re: Problems running cvs pserver

mmm I also get this problem, and i am trying to build cvs without kerberos
the problem is that server.c wants to include krb5.h and the Makefile always
seems to want to link in the kerberos libraries - that i don;t have
installed, and i don't want to install.

i run
./configure --disable-encryption --prefix=/opt/cvs --with-gssapi=no
and then server.c failes to build because it tries to include krb5.h

I comment out the
#define HAVE_GSSAPI 1
because that stops krb5.h form being included

it compiles fine,
and failes to build because Makefile wants to link with

all of which do not exist on my machine :)

this results in an exe that both supports and doesn't support pserver ;)

so, um, what am i doing wrong ?

That indicates that the CVS you're trying to use as a server was
compiled without pserver support; check your configure output.
