Re: I need HELP recovering a DEAD repository

Yes, you're right. a 'rpm -qa' reveals two versions
of db4:


But I don't know enough about svn/BDB to know what to
do now, any suggestions?

I thought installing two BDBs was common practice
because I read about it on the mailing list archives.
Both versions are needed because apr-utils-0.9.5
depends on db4-4.2 while subversion/httpd depend on
db4-4.0, at least in the redhat rpms.

Also, it's been like this since I first created the
repository, so nothing changed in the middle wrt BDB.
The only change has been two upgrades from subversion
0.37 to 1.0.0-1 to 1.0.1-1. Maybe 1.0.1-1 had a
problem recovering log files created by 0.37??
