Re: svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL

Hmm...well, svn --version does list ra_local as one of the options. The
server is Redhat Linux 7.1. I had to jump through all sorts of hoops to
get subversion installed (blah) but it was all binary packages...some of
what I installed (if I remember correctly) was:


The RPM set up seems to be borked on this machine though, because rpm -q
  says everything is not installed (more blah) even though I'm positive
I installed at least three of the above packages (don't remember if I
installed the server as well).

Also, BDB 4.2 is installed. I don't know if it is relevant, but when I
create the repository, I get this message:

svn: Bad database version: compiled with 4.0.14, running against 4.2.52

I find this confusing, because I'm pretty sure I installed 4.2 because I
couldn't get svn to compile without it (sorry my memory is so poor on
this). Seemingly that could affect things, but it does seem to run
fine, and the repository is created...

Anyways, if I can tell you more let me know. Thanks for the help!
