Hi list,

It's my first time using subversion. I am getting an error message when
commiting to the svn repository. Here it goes:

# su nobody
(apache2 runs as nobody:nobody)

nobody $ svn create /snv/repository

$ svn co --username rfang1 http://svn_server/repository -m "svn test" \
Checked out revision 0.

$ cd /tmp/svn_t
$ echo "abc" > a
$ svn add a

$ svn ci --username rfang1 -m "Added file a." a
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
Could not read status line: connection was closed by server.

Here is the apache2 error_log:

[Thu Aug 12 09:51:27 2004] [notice] child pid 861 exit signal Illegal instruction (4)
[Thu Aug 12 09:51:27 2004] [notice] child pid 862 exit signal Illegal instruction (4)

I did a gdb debug (all the binaries were stiped, so I only got where
httpd exit out):

# gdb /opt/csw/apache2/sbin/httpd
<copyright blah blah...>
(gdb) run -X -f /opt/csw/apache2/etc/httpd.conf

Looks like httpd failed on at apr_posix_perms2mode?
Any ideas where the problem is?
