There are two opensource kerberos servers, one is MIT, which is the
default on red-hat distros, the other is Heimdal, which is the default
for Samba. After a lot of work, Fedora is now using MIT with Samba, but
there is still a lot more to do, so it is recommended to only use the
Fedora packages for testing and Samba with MIT is marked as

You can compile from source, but this would entail either creating your
own RPM's or setting the configure options to place Samba into where
Fedora expects it to be (which could be overwritten by a later distro
update) or just running './configure' which would place Samba entirely
into /usr/local/samba. You could also try to find a repo that supplies
Fedora RPM's that use Heimdal.

Another option is to use a distro that has always used Heimdal, Debian
is such a distro, but their Samba packages are bit old, this isn't a
big problem, you can find later Samba packages here:
