Can you ssh onto the machine without a password? If you can't then
subversion can't either. The following should produce no output.

  ssh user@hostname true

The typical configuration uses ssh with RSA keys and ssh-agent to help
manage them. Search the web for that and you will find a zillion
HOWTOs and other documentation.

Since that is off-topic for this list I will keep this short. Make
sure you have an RSA ssh key. Make sure you have the ssh-agent
running. Make sure you have loaded the key into the ssh-agent.

Here is a good resource.
