RE: svnserve issue

Xinetd is not running. I tried to invoke 'service xinetd start' and I get
an error xinetd/bin/bash: xinetd: command not found :-(.

That means the problem is in the xinetd configuration not svn.

Check that

a) xinetd is running and not just inetd

b) you have put your svnserve xinetd config file in the right place (check
/etc/xinetd.conf for includdir)

c) check that your svnserve xinetd config file has the service enabled

d) look for clues in the syslog file. If xinetd tried to open the port for
listening and couldn't or failed to read the config file, it should log an
error.
