Urgh. In the short term, you **MAY** be able to fix this by poking
through the xinetd init script. But if it's failing to restart after a
fresh install, you should probably file a bug with the distribution,
because it looks like they've produced a broken package. :(

*nod* Given the [FAILED] notes above, that's to be expected. xinetd
isn't running, and can't start (at least not via the provided init
script). It looks as if the init script isn't even reaching the call to
actually start xinetd.

Not much more anyone here can really do for you; as a temporary
workaround you should be able to just use svnserve as a standalone
daemon by adding something like this:

su svnuser -c "/usr/bin/svnserve -d -r /path/to/repositories"

to /etc/rc.d/rc.local. (Hopefully you *have* that file; if it's not
there try creating it.) This should allow svnserve to start on boot.

Run the same command from a root shell to start svnserve right away.
