I am using 11 repositories on my cvs server,
I had the same problem before. Solution:
Put this line into /etc/inetd.conf

cvspserver      stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/local/cvs/bin/runcvs

runcvs is shell script file (change the location according to your
installation, and chmod +x)
runcvs file:
-------------- copy here ------------------------
/usr/local/cvs/bin/cvs \
                        --allow-root=/repository1 \
                        --allow-root=/repository2 \
                        --allow-root=/repository2 \
                        --allow-root=/repository3 \
                        --allow-root=/repository4 \
                        --allow-root=/repository5 \
                        --allow-root=/repository6 \
                        --allow-root=/repository7 \
                        --allow-root=/repository8 \
                        --allow-root=/repository9 \
                        --allow-root=/repository10 \
                        --allow-root=/repository11 \
