Perhaps, I don't remember.

fsfs is the format of the db, checked the format some minutes ago.

I remember that I tried to use the svnserve process first, but failed and
then switched to using file access method. As I used Kubuntu at that time
there may another subversion version be involved: 1.4.0. Perhaps 1.4.0
aren't compatible if one accesses the repository using the file method?

Anyway, the best way to clean up this mess seems to be to setup a new
repositoty. Is the following correct?

* dump at the client (where it is successfull)
* wipe repository
* create a new repository locally at the server
* import the dump locally at the server
* start svnserve process on the server
* use only method "svn:" in the future

Dumps are portable, right?
