Hi All,
        I've recently got a Subversion repository (after having argued
needlessly with CVS) going on a small server I have here. So far, I've
been able to check out a working directory, and add files, but I run
into problems when I try to commit the changes...

        If I do it using a file:/// URL, it works fine -- which points to a
problem with Apache/SVN rather than SVN itself. I've tried with
TortiseSVN, RapidSVN & the command line client (running on the actual
server).

        On the server -- if I execute a commit, this is what I get:

stuartl@qube ~/atomiclinux
$ svn commit -m 'Added README v0'
Authentication realm: <http://localhost:1280> Atomic Linux Subversion
Repository
stuartl's password:
svn: Activity not found
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn:
The specified activity does not exist.

        I've seen in the Subversion Book, that this can be caused by file
permissions. I've made the directories (and parent directories) world
writeable -- so this shouldn't be a problem. Also, 'nobody' (the user
Apache runs as) owns the files in question. Below is the output from ls -lR

        Is there something I've missed? The server is a Gateway Microserver
internet appliance running Debian Unstable (mipsel), Apache 2.0.47 &
fairly recent SVN binaries (checked out from the repository).
