I got same "could not start Kerberos" error on my Redhat EL5 server. Does
that mean I need to install the  krb5-server package? 

The original installation only has krb5-libs and krb5-workstation.

I actually have already installed the krb5-server package, and I am pulling
my hair on get it up. Since my original purpose was merely to set up the
CalDAV service, so I am just wondering if I could just skip that part.

Thanks for enlightenments!
