Hmm... if you could answer these qustions... might help me understand your
environment a little bit better.

question one: did you install everything (SVN and depenendencies) from
Fedora RPM's provided by RedHat or did you install any of them from
source?

question two: Are you using suexec in your httpd.conf?

question three: What did you add to your httpd.conf for SVN?

Thanks!
