I'm aware that my mail wasn't very good to begin with. I'm sorry for
that. I didn't know about the ldd command but I have figured this out by

        ldd /usr/bin/svnadmin

to find out that it is linked against

        libdb-4.0.so => /usr/lib/libdb-4.0.so (0x400c6000)

rpm -qi db4 shows me that it is actually version 4.0 (and not 4.2) that
is installed in RedHat release 9. This explains why I can't uncomment the

        # set_flags DB_LOG_AUTOREMOVE

line in DB_CONFIG in my repository which I suspected was the problem in
the first place. Actually, the error subversion gave me upon browsing



        <m:human-readable errcode="160029">
        Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

Thanks for all the help.

Best regards,
Jan Nielsen
