Hi! I'm trying to set up a subversion server using the standalone
I added svnserve to inetd started as a 'nobody' user for anonymous
read-only access, but clients keep saying the repository don't exists.
So I've changed to nobody user and tryed to make a svn co
svn co file:///var/lib/svn/bife and it failed with this message:
svn: Couldn't open a repository.
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///var/lib/svn/bife'
svn: Berkeley DB error
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem
Permission denied

The respository exists, it's not broken and it has read access for
ls -FAlh /var/lib/svn/bife
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 172K 2003-07-20 15:39 changes
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 44K 2003-07-20 15:39 copies
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 8,0K 2003-07-20 15:34 __db.001
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 264K 2003-07-20 15:34 __db.002
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 320K 2003-07-20 15:34 __db.003
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 720K 2003-07-20 15:34 __db.004
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 16K 2003-07-20 15:34 __db.005
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 1,3K 2003-05-16 23:54 DB_CONFIG
[and so on]

ls -FAlh /var/lib/svn/bife
drwxrwsr-x 2 root src 80 2003-05-17 01:28 dav/
drwxrwsr-x 2 root src 960 2003-07-20 15:34 db/
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 2 2003-05-16 23:54 format
drwxrwsr-x 2 root src 232 2003-05-16 23:54 hooks/
drwxrwsr-x 2 root src 72 2003-05-16 23:54 locks/
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 root src 376 2003-05-16 23:54 README.txt

When using a user in the src group (with write access) al works fine, so
I was wondering... Does checkout need write permissions? If so, it's a
bug or a feature? If not, what could be going wrong with my nobody user?

Thanks in advance...
