First time user. Downloaded/installed svn latest only today on Fedora
Linux. Importing several projects went fine (see history below), so
decided to check in the website too

        cd /var/www
        svn import html file:///opt/svn/html

Seemed to go fine, so
        mv html html.bak
        svn checkout html

and kaboom:
        svn checkout file:///opt/svn/var/www/html svn: Berkeley
DB error while committing Berkeley DB transaction for
                filesystem /opt/svn/db: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error,
run database recovery Aborted

Plenty of RAM and disk. Nothing unusual going on.

The trail stops cold there. Nothing in the book or the faq. The mailing list
http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=users&msgNo=85 suggests
        db_recover -h /home/doug/svn_client_work/db

but there's no svn_client_work/db in my home directory (this was an
rpm install).

Not confidence inspiring for this first-time user. How do I dig out of this?

Here's the actual history. I suspect the
        svn import html file:///opt/svn/var/www/html

line caused this but I've really no idea. Can someone here help?

PS: Why can't svn provide precise instructions? "run database
recovery" is absolutely no help.
