        Apologies for the delay, I've been busy with some other tasks.

        Tonight I just upgraded Subversion on the server to the latest release,
0.28.2 -- I installed it over the top of the old version using the
commands: (The server hasn't got a lot of CPU grunt, and therefore this
takes a while -- hence why it's taken me a while to get back around to
fixing it)

# tar -xzvf /home/public/subversion-0.28.2.tar.gz.bz2
# cd subversion-0.28.2/
# rm -f /usr/local/lib/libsvn*
# rm -f /usr/local/lib/libapr*
# rm -f /usr/local/lib/libexpat*
# rm -f /usr/local/lib/libneon*
# ./autogen.sh
# ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode
# make all install

All went well, the new version installed without a hitch.
I fire up Apache 2 (which had been shut down prior to the upgrade), blow
away the old repository (there was only 1 file) and recreated it (as

# cd /home/cvs
# rm -fr atomiclinux
# su nobody
$ svnadmin create atomiclinux
$ exit

Now, I logged in via SSH as a user, and tried adding a file to the

$ rm -fr atomiclinux/.svn
$ svn co http://localhost:1280/svn/atomiclinux/
Checked out revision 0.
$ cd atomiclinux
$ svn add LICENCE
$ svn commit

not read status line: connection was closed by server.

Inside the server's log files, I record the following messages...

[Fri Sep 05 00:53:47 2003] [notice] child pid 4078 exit signal
Segmentation fault (11)
[Fri Sep 05 00:53:47 2003] [notice] child pid 4052 exit signal
Segmentation fault (11)

I get similar results using the latest version of TortiseSVN under Windows.

Some module somewhere in the system did not respond well to the upgrade,
and hence, all hell has broken loose. Is there anywhere I can look to
get this problem fixed?
