Re: svnserve hang - SMP questions

Hi Tobias,

Thanks for the response. I realize that what you
indicate below is covered in the FAQ. However, I do
not believe this to be the case. I am the lone
administrator of this box and this repository. I can
set up a brand new clean repository, and then from the
client, do a checkout and the same thing occurs -- it
hangs. I can guarantee that there are no other
clients hitting the repository or local svn* processes
hitting the repository at the same time the checkout
is underway. Doing svnadmin recover does not seem to
fix this problem.

What I am curious about -- is if it is possibly an SMP
issue. Has anyone run svnserve on SMP boxes before?

What I see is that a single client doing a checkout
connects via SSH one time and starts the svnserve
process, then a second or so later connects via SSH
again, and launches *another* svnserve process. Is
this by design -- such that a single checkout requires
2 svnserve processes to be running? If so, is it at
all possible that there is deadlock between the two
processes somewhere along the line that causes this
