Re: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

Ok, got it working on Apache.

Exclusion of David Summers' httpd RPMs was the problem.

So, to get Subversion 1.0 running on an yum-current FC1 installation, this is
what I did:

1) From http://summersoft.fay.ar.us/pub/subversion/latest/fedora/bin/ got
EVERYTHING except db4 ancillary ( db4-devel db4-tcl db4-util ) files.

2) rpm -ivh db4-4.2.52-3.i386.rpm

3) rpm -Uvh apr-*0.9.5-0.3.i386.rpm

4) rpm -Uvh neon-*0.24.4-1.i386.rpm

5) rpm -e mod_dav_svn-0.32.1-1

6) rpm -Uvh subversion-*1.0.0-2.fc1.i386.rpm

7) rpm -Uvh httpd-*2.0.48-1.2.1.i386.rpm

8) Create a repository base
        mkdir <path>/svn

9) svnadmin create <repository_base>/test

10) chown -fR apache:apache /<path>/svn

11 ) Modified the httpd.conf file:
        ...
        LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
        ...
        ...
        <Location /svn>
                DAV svn
                SVNParentPath <repository_base>
         </Location>

12) /sbin/service httpd restart

Now you -should- be able view the repository by pointing a browser to
        http://<server_ip_or url>/svn/test

As each new repository is created, the uid:gid of the repository MUST be
changed to apache:apache as identified in the enumeration above. If the
repository_base paradyne is utilized, creating new repositories should not
require an httpd daemon restart.

Note however that NO authentication issue are addressed; this configuration is
FULLY accessable to anybody with knowledge of the URL. Read the docs for
securing access.

Hopfully this will help with other FC1 people struggling to install and
implement Subversion 1.0
