Hi,

I came across a problem I read several times in this list. However it
seemed to me that nobody posted a solution. Thatswhy I'm asking it
again. ;-)

I'm runnning:
$ svn --version
svn, version 1.1.3 (r12730)
   compiled Feb 22 2005, 00:27:26
[...]
* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV) protocol.
  - handles 'http' schema
  - handles 'https' schema
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' schema
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
  - handles 'svn' schema

and try to work through O'Reillys Subversion book (which is IMHO similar
to http://svnbook.red-bean.com/). What did I do?

$ ls -la testrepo

This repository lives inside my homedirectoy and is an ext3 partition. I
wanted to import a plain text file after creating the repository:

$ svn import testrepo file:///home/jens/chili -m testing
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///home/jens/chili'
$ svn (ls|status|info) testrepo
svn: 'testrepo' is not a working copy

I tried to cd inside the repository and doing the same. Furthermore I
found some hints to change rights (chmod 777) the repository. All of
them didn't work. So I have no idea what do to. Could you give me a hint
or tell me if you need more information?
