With the help of Boyd Meier I could install his version of the i686 RPM
package. He already created a working version of the .spec file for this

But one problem is still around.

I evaluated this a little bit more. And what happens is, that the
CVSNT client needs several seconds to complete a command. Thereby
it doesn't matter if I connect to a remote or the local CVSNT server.

  [stegeman at igs-srv2 ~]$ setenv
  CVSROOT=:pserver:stegeman at localhost:/devel/cvsroot
  [stegeman at igs-srv2 ~]$ cvs login
  Logging in to :pserver:stegeman at localhost:2401/devel/cvsroot
  CVS password:
  [stegeman at igs-srv2 ~]$ cvs ve
  Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT)  (Build 57g)
  Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT)  (Build 57g)
  [stegeman at igs-srv2 ~]$

Just a simple version command needs about 15 seconds. And the CPU idle time
about 97 %. And there seems to be not network problem, since other things

And if I connect from a remote client, e.g. from a windows client, to this
box cvs commands are completed instantly. So the server part is not causing

Any ideas what's happening here? Maybe a DNS reverse lookup problem?
