Can't import - Error opening db lockfile

Hi,

I have installed subversion 1.1.2 on a linux system. The installation
seemed to go ok,
and apperantly I can create a repository, but I can't import a new
project into it...

Berkeley DB is not installed, so I use a fsfs type repository.

% svnadmin create /path/to/svnroot --fs-type fsfs

% svn import PROJECT/ file:///path/to/svnroot

svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///path/to/svnroot'
svn: Error opening db lockfile
svn: Can't get shared lock on file '/path/to/svnroot/locks/db.lock':
No locks available
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: 'svn-commit.2.tmp'

The repository seems to have been created:

% ls -1 /path/to/svnroot
conf
dav
db
format
hooks
locks
README.txt

I'm using subversion 1.1.2
% svn --version
svn, version 1.1.2 (r12471)

Any pointers to what could be wrong here?
