This fine. What I actually meant was if it was the root (i.e., Location

You tried point SVNParentPath to a local directory, right?

Hmm, I wasn't aware you could mix authentication schemes like this.

I'm not sure about smbfs's file locking semantics. If they're broken,
then fsfs won't work correctly. I believe there is some mention of this
in the FAQ (not smbfs in particular, but locking in relation to NFS).

I think if it's working with a local path (meaning, that you served a
local path to the repository through Apache2), then my attention would
turn to smbfs. I'm unfamiliar with it's use, so unfortunately, I'm not
sure how much I can help. :-(
