Re: Problems using subversion on Fedora

I would disable SELinux and try. I had lots of issues with various
applications (apache comes to mind) with FC2 and FC3 until I disabled
SELinux. I do not really require the extra securtiy provided on the hosts
that gave me troubles. Remember, if you boot with SELinux disabled, any
files created while it is disabled will not have SELinux context
information.

Check your status like this:
/usr/sbin/sestatus -v

If it is enabled, and you want to disable at runtime, then run
/usr/sbin/setenforce 0. If this did not fix your issue, and you want to
renable SELinux, then run /usr/sbin/setenforce 1.

If you want to disable permenately...

You can use the GUI:
/usr/bin/system-config-securitylevel and select SELinux tab
and make sure "enabled" is no selected.

Or you can use command line:
Edit /etc/sysconfig/selinux and set the
SELINUX line to disabled:
SELINUX=disabled

Hope this helps.
