problems with svn using direct repository access (file:) on Win98

I have downloaded subversion binary release 0.35.1 for Windows 9x platform (svn-0.35.1-setup.exe) and installed it on my somewhat old personal computer (pentium 200Mhz, 64Mb RAM, Windows 98). After the installation, I created a repository using svnadmin and tried to import a directory tree to the repository. The repository seems to be OK, but the import did not work. I used direct repository access (file:). The commands I used and the messages I received are included below. I tried to run "svnadmin recover" as asked but it didn't make any diference. It seems to me that there's two problems: something wrong with the ra_local session and something wrong with Berkeley DB.

Trying to figure out what's happening, I read the FAQ. The answer to question 5 (What operating systems does Subversion run on?) says (as far as I could understand) that Berkeley DB does not work on Win95/Win98. Based on this, I conclude that I can only use a Windows 98 box as a Subversion client. Is it true?

I would apreciate any help!


C:\>svnadmin create \repos\repos1

C:\>svn import -m "project my tree" mytree file:///repos/repos1
