Hi Kris,
Well it is not a fresh install, I had Mandriva 2007 and xinetd and svnserve
were working great; I upgraded to Mandriva 2007 Spring and this is when the
problem arose. Anyways, thanks for your time, I will try contacting
Mandriva about the xinetd issue.

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.
