RE: problems with svn+ssh under OS X

The problem is that I already have svnserve in the path; I can log into
the machine via SSH and run svnserve. 'which svnserve' returns the
correct path.

Also, I discovered that if I just use 'svn' rather than 'svn+ssh', that
I can properly communicate (I just did a checkout/commit/update from the
linux box, and everything is happy). I'm still interested in figuring
out WHY I can't get it to work via svn+ssh though.

Anthony, I did as you suggested to see if there was anything that was
coming up with SSH when I first login; all that comes up is the standard
stuff, e.g.:

        Last login: Tue Jan 18 10:49:46 2005
        Welcome to Darwin!

I know I'm reaching for straws here, but is there any possibility that I
should be forcing the use of ssh protocol 1 (or 2) or something else
that I don't know about?

Thanks,
Cem Karan
