Hi,

I'm new to subversion but have read the manual and the faq and am still
dealing with unresolved questions.

Eventually I'd like to set up subversion to run through Apache, but for
the time being I'd like to simply set up svnserve.

I set up an 'svn' user in the 'svn' group and gave them ownership
privileges over my repository (/home/svn). Then I edited svnserve.conf
to authenticate against a passwd file and set 'anon-access = none' and
'auth-access = write'. I left 'realm' commented out, because I don't
really understand what it does.

Then running:
> svnserve -d -r /home/svn

seems to start up the server... I can check out a file (on the local
machine) with:
> svn co svn://localhost/project

but, I'm not prompted for a password, and the project checks out without
a problem (but it should prompt me for a password, right?)

Then, when trying to check out from a remote computer I get:
svn: Authorization failed
svn: Not authorized for access

Same thing when I use the --password switch.

And finally, my last problem, is that I would ultimately like to set up
svnserve through xinetd... does anyone have a sample config file they'd
like to share?

Thanks in advance for the help.
