I think this should be
$ svn checkout file:///$HOME/svn_repos/newrepo
I know that with the cd command before, $PWD and $HOME are the same, but it's safer to use $HOME, as it will always point to the correct location. Also, notice the three /. According to the book you should either have file://localhost/$HOME... Or file:///$HOME... However I tried on a RHEL and file://$HOME works too
