Re: Problem with subversion server running on Fedora

I'm installing from the fedora rpm's, and the corresponding download
server set up for svn at


I suspected mixed binaries, so I explicitly did a rpm -e for the
subversion packages, and verified that mod_dav_svn and libsvn_fs had
been removed. I then re-installed 0.37.

Is there anything specific you would like me to look for? Are there any
other ways of testing remote connections? Local connections seem to work
fine. I tried:

svnlook info /var/vc /

and got back 0. I suppose this would be expected for a new repository?
