Re: Install Subversion on Gentoo Help

I run the Subversion ebuild on Gentoo. I did not try to move the
ebuild's repository location to somewhere else, though. I would guess
it's a permission problem, if the svn group does not have write
permission. I just run "chmod -R 775 /path/to/svn/repository" and chmod
-R g+s /path/to/svn/repository" and it works. I added my user and apache
to the svn group.
