cvs operations fail: "No route to host"



  i just upgraded an FC1 server to FC3, and (AFAICT) left alone the
/home filesystem that contained the network-accessible CVS repo.
(it wasn't technically an "upgrade" -- i actually did an install over
top of the system-related filesystems, while preserving the others,
like /home.  i've done that for a number of releases, with no real
problems.)

  after booting under FC3, and restoring /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver, and
restarting xinetd (all the regular stuff) to get the CVS server back
online, every time i try to connect across the network to the server,
i get:

  $ cvs login
  Logging in to :pserver:rob@<hostname>:2401/home/repository
  CVS password:
  cvs [login aborted]: connect to <hostname>(<IP address>):2401
     failed: No route to host

i've verified that the network is up, that i can ssh into the server,
that xinetd is running, that cvspserver is on, that the CVS repo is
unchanged from what it was before the re-install, etc.  i'm not sure
what else i might be checking.

  also, as a last resort, i logged directly into the server, and just
tried to do a login and checkout locally:

  $ export CVSROOT=:pserver:rob localhost:/home/repository  (legal?)
  $ cvs login
  Logging in to :pserver:rob localhost:2401/home/repository
  CVS password:
  $ cvs co <project>
  cvs checkout: Updating <project>
  cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot stat /var/lock/cvs: No such file or
    directory
  cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot stat /var/lock/cvs: No such file or
    directory
  $

huh?  this is a new one on me.  if i (as root) just create that
directory with "mkdir", i get:

  $ cvs co <project>
  cvs checkout: Updating <project>
  cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot make directory  \
    /var/lock/cvs/<project>: Permission denied
  (previous line repeated)

so if i change /var/lock/cvs to have mode 777 (yuck), then ...
success, i can check out the project locally.  i'm pretty sure this
isn't the officially-sanctioned technique, and it's starting to make
me a little queasy.

  thoughts?  is there some subtle change on the CVS server side with
FC3 that i need to know about that's causing these problems?  bugzilla
doesn't have anything to say about it AFAICT.
