introduction and recovery help

Hi everyone, my name is Scragz. I've been using svn for about 6 months
or so and just found out about this list from "the book". So that leads
me straight into my problem :)

I have a few (~ 5) repositories that I'm trying to migrate to a new
machine after my last one suddenly died earlier this week. As far as I
can tell, I have everything pretty much set up the way it was before,
except any attempt to run subversion commands that deal with the
repository hang indefinitely. Other commands work, and I've
successfully made new repositories and checked in/out of them as a

I've changed all the permissions which were initially giving me problems
and ran `svnadmin recover foo` like the book said (I'm now giving up on
it doing anything after 45 minutes). The only thing I have left to go
in is this:

> If the previous procedure, for some reason, does not successfully

So any help would be great. My problem is that this *is* my latest (and
only) backup that I'm trying to recover. All of this is using version
1.0.9 on Debian unstable for amd64.

Could the migration from i386 to amd64 be causing problems? I thought
the DB files were pretty much platform agnostic.

I tried making a new repo with the same path and copying the old repo's
db/ files, and this make the new one break.

Thanks for any help you all can give.
