Hi Eetu,

    I don't think that's an Apache error, I think that's Subversion
complaining that it was compiled for DB 4.1.25, and is being told to
open a repository generated with DB version 4.0.14. Apache shouldn't
need to access the database directly, so I don't think its DB version
matters. You might try the 1.10 version of Subversion with the "svnadmin
create --fs-type fsfs repository" option, which bypasses the Berkeley
DB. Did you have an old repository, or was it one you just created after
installing Subversion? If it's the latter, I can't imagine why it would
get inconsistent DB versions.
