Well, this was a while ago, I'm guessing early/mid May. I was using 1.04
rpms and I couldn't get apache to "see" the repository. So something
like what's below. The problem was that it was acting like the
repository didn't exist, or permissions weren't right, basically File
Not Found errors "Could not open the requested SVN filesystem".
Permissions were correct, I checked at least twenty times. I'm not sure
why it happened. But since then I've moved to FC2, and I've had no
problems since. I don't really have a way to test FC1 now, so I don't
really know if I can be much help fixing the problem. For all I know,
these problems might not be occurring after 1.04.
