RE: linux subversion client with Kerberos

Yes, they do need their password the first time they connect, but as you say it is cached (with the username) for future use. This cache file is set as read/write to user only, so only root (and possibly sudo's) can read the contents.
As far as I know, SVN client on Unix/Linux only supports basic auth with http/https, so I don't see any other option at this time.
Thanks. Do people need to enter password to establish SVN connection in your case? Plus, SVN will cache the passwords. It is a security concern.
You *might* have better luck with KrbMethodNegotiate Off and possibly KrbMethodK5Passwd on. You might not, but it works for me :-)
Basically I am looking for a linux subversion client which can do Kerberos authentication with Windows Active Directory. I've search the mail list archive and could not find one. Any help would be highly appreciated.
My SVN server is configured as Apache/Kerberos authentication. Currently I've successfully got Windows SVN client working.
Below is version of my SVN server and windows client.
