Yes - perfectly, as well as the url based way using localhost.

There is an issue here you guys might (like to?) be aware of, but its
something I can live with. I mentioned I'm moving from Windows to
Linux. Well it seems the repositories are not compatible, or more
likely my process is flawed. What I did was mount the linux folder as
a samba share on the Windows box and drag the repositories over (svn
was stopped, created copies). The files seemed ok. I started svnserve
(don't use Apache) and tried a checkout - it failed, I got the same
Berkely db error I originally reported. So I used svnadmin to create a
new repos in Linux and that was fine, its the one I've been doing
these tests with. Similarly browsign the ex-windows repositories from
a remote client using Tortoise fails, the nbew native ones are fine.
(with that it connects but I just get the word "Dummy" in the panel).

I actually used windows just to test svn having moved from SourceSafe.
Its passed :-) So its really only lightly loaded, and recreating the
repositories manually doesn't cause too much pain. I can see it could
in other circumstances though. Does it sound like the copy process I
used was at fault, or is there a platform issue here?
