svnserve -r option

Hello

I'm a Subversion noob.

I've been reading the svn book and reading other svn related stuff online. Sometimes `rtfm` just doesn't get the job done. :-)

I'm having some trouble getting svnserve to obey my "-r" option. I'm using ssh tunneling and suspect that might have something to do with it since it seems to work when not tunneling.

I was running it like so:

su subversion -c "/usr/local/bin/svnserve -d -r /usr/local/svn/repos"

I've also tried as a inetd process with each of the following:

svn stream tcp nowait subversion /usr/local/bin/svnserve svnserve -i -r /usr/local/svn/repos
svn stream tcp nowait subversion /usr/local/bin/svnserve svnserve -t -r /usr/local/svn/repos

It just seems that no matter what I try, I still have to specify the full system path in my svn url.

jgrill_at_testbox:~$ svn list svn+ssh://localhost/phpclasses/pagination
jgrill@localhost's password:
svn: No repository found in 'svn+ssh://localhost/phpclasses/pagination'

jgrill_at_testbox:~$ svn list svn+ssh://localhost/usr/local/svn/repos/phpclasses/pagination
jgrill@localhost's password:
blah/
foo/
bar/

Thanks,

Jim Grill
