Subject: Installed kerberos on Rossa 
Quote:

I have installed kerberos on Rossa, so that I don't have to type my name and password every time I do an svn checkin, since I'm making some modifications and want to be sure that everything is checked in before and afterwards. 

I ran sudo apt-get install krb5-user.  I didn't put in a default_realm when it prompted me to during install, so I went into the /etc/krb5.conf file and changed the default_realm line to read default_realm = LIGO.ORG

Now we can use kinit, but we must (as usual) remember to kdestroy our credentials when we're done.

As a reminder, to use:

> kinit albert.einstein

Password for albert.einstein@LIGO.ORG: (type your pw here)

When you're finished, run

> kdestroy

The end.

WARNING: since the workstations are all shared user, if you forget to kdestroy the next user can commit under your user ID.  It might be good to set the timeout to be something much shorter than 24 hours, like maybe 1, or 2.
