need help setting up svn+ssh://

From: Guido van Rossum <guido_at_python.org>

I'm a newbie svn administrator. I have no desire to become an Apache
administrator, so I'd like to use svnserve. I've got the 0.26 svn
RPMs installed under Red Hat 9.

I've successfully set up a svn repository. I configured svnserve to be
run by (x)inetd when a connection is made to port 3690. I created a
separate user 'subversion' and the svnserve process runs as this user.
I give the arguments "-r /home/subversion" to svnserve so I can use a
nice short url like svn://<host>/<repos> to check out from the
repository at /home/subversion/<repos>/.

This works fine, and we've been checking into and out of it for a
couple of weeks. But this way, all checkins are anonymous.

Reading the docs, I should be able to do (at least from a Unix client)

  svn co svn+ssh://<host>/home/subversion/<repos>

To test this, I have added myself to the subversion group in
/etc/group; all the directories and files in the repository are group
writable and have user and group set to subversion. I am ssh'ing in
from the same host that is the server, because I've only got one Unix
host to test this with.

But no matter what I try, I get the following error messages:

  svn: Couldn't find a repository
  svn: No repository found in 'svn+ssh://<host>/home/subversion/<repos>'

Where can I buy a clue?

PS I'm not sure if I'm actually on this list; I sent a subscription
mail but didn't get a rseponse yet, so I'd appreciate being cc'ed on
responses. Thanks!
