No, not root, but you do need read/write access to the entire
repository. It's pretty clear that you don't. 'db_recover' is giving
you all sorts of permission errors trying to open db files... that's
probably the reason 'svnadmin recover' failed in the first place.

The standard wisdom is: run recovery as the user which owns the repository.

(Don't run as root... you're likely to accidentally change file
ownership and make it inaccessible for other users.)
