Hello,
    I have just installed subversion 1.0.1 rpm on redhat 9 running
kernel : kernel-2.4.20-20.9. I am trying to create a new repository in
the directory I have chosen to store my svn repositories, /var/subversion :
drwxr-xr-x 3 svnowner svnowner 4.0K Mar 24 08:26 subversion
.....
However when I attempt to create a new repository I get the following
error ( as root ):
#: /usr/bin/svnadmin create /var/subversion/test
svn: Berkeley DB error while creating environment for filesystem
/var/subversion/test/db:
Invalid argument
....
and here is the files that it did create:
 /var/subversion/test)>ls
total 36K
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4.0K Mar 24 09:13 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 svnowner svnowner 4.0K Mar 24 09:13 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Mar 24 09:13 conf
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Mar 24 09:13 dav
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Mar 24 09:13 db

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Mar 24 09:13 hooks
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Mar 24 09:13 locks
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 376 Mar 24 09:13 README.txt
