Re: OS X Tiger Launchd plist

For some reason, this launchd plist isn't working for me.

After customizing the plist (changing the --root path and adding my
newly-created 'svn' user and group) and following the load
instructions, I check 'ps auxww | grep svn', and there isn't a
svnserve process running.

If I do 'sudo launchctl start org.tigris.subversion.svnserv', I get
this in the process list:

/usr/libexec/launchproxy svnserve --inetd --root=/Users/Shared/
Repository

The process is owned by the UserName specified in the plist; I've
changed the UserName and the owner of the process changes accordingly
the next time I start it.

That process runs for only about 10 seconds, then it's gone. While
it's running, I still can't do anything with my repository; running
any repository-checking command gives me:

svn: Can't connect to host 'localhost': Connection refused

I can run 'svnserve --daemon --root=/Users/Shared/Repository' as my
main administrator user (the owner of the repository files) or from a
shell for the svn user (svn user is part of the svn group -- along
with my admin user -- which has read access to the repository and
write access to the repository's db/ and locks/ directories). This
way, the server starts up and runs without a problem; I can do 'svn
st -u' and get results instead of the error.

Does anyone have any insight into this?
