Re: svn import fails (almost same problem) + script

Following Nathan's suggestion to do what someone said in an
earlier mail:

I got:

(gdb) print *err
$1 = {apr_err = 21081, src_err = 13,
  message = 0x8059c68 "Berkeley DB error while opening environment for
filesystem /var/tmp/svn-repository-test/db:\nPermission denied", child =
0x0,
  pool = 0x8059b40, file = 0x0, line = -1}

Hmmm ... I don't understand; I did the svnadmin, which created the
files belonging to root - the user I'd run it as - then I did a chown
-R nobody:nogroup to give them away to the web server runner uid/gid
(verified id from ps listing and httpd.conf).

As Ben mentioned someone else had been able to do,
I too can do creates without problem, but the import does't work.

Short of patching the code is there anyway to get it tell me who *it*
thinks its running as? :-)

My repository looks like this:

Anybody got any ideas what to try next? Thanks!
