file:// works, http:// doesn't.

Hi, I'm new to the world of subversion, so please forgive me if this is a
dumb mistake.

I have svn 0.14.0 compiled from cvs revision 2918 on August 9. The box is an
old Redhat 7.1 box with kernel 2.4.5 and XFS as the filesystem.

I compiled the client first and got a repository set up and working just
fine through ra_local. Imports, checkouts, updates, commits all work fine.

The next day I compiled apache2 and mod_dav(_svn) and crew from the same svn
tree, with the newest apache2/apr/apr-util from cvs (apache-2.0.40), as well
as upgrading db4 system wide, and adding neon to the system wide libs.

After forgetting to include --with-db=db4 to apache and getting version
errors, I recompiled and everything looked good. I did an http:// checkout
of something I'd originally put in the repository via file:///.

So I got cocky and compiled svn under OS X 10.1.5 on my iBook. After
fiddling with upgraded libtool and autoconf, lo and behold I had an svn
client working, this one reports 0.14.1, from repository 2959. Checked out
that same test directory over http and went to bed happy.

So this morning I tried to import something over http, which I hadn't
attempted before. No dice. Here's the scoop.

The same thing happens from both linux and OS X so I'll just paste the linux
info here.

if I do...

[ct_at_zen ~]% svn import http://svn.logimeta.com/ txt textdocs -m ""

it returns...

svn: Apache got a malformed URI
The specified URI does not refer to this repository, so it is unusable.

in my error log for that vhost I get

[Wed Aug 14 11:36:13 2002] [error] [client] Could not
CHECKOUT resource /!svn/bln/5. [409, #0]
[Wed Aug 14 11:36:13 2002] [error] [client] The activity href
could not be parsed properly. [409, #21114]
[Wed Aug 14 11:36:13 2002] [error] [client] (17)File exists:
The specified URI does not refer to this repository, so it is unusable.
[409, #21114]

I've checked all file permissions on /home/svn are set to be able to be
written by the web user, as is /tmp/DavLock.

and for the record...

[ct_at_zen ~]% sudo svn import file:///home/svn txt textdocs -m ""

works just fine.

Any Suggestions?
