furstrated: repos/format permission denied error with apache

hi,

i googled and searched various archives. many people seemed to have
posted about this, but there are no solutions.

i just setup apache2.0 with mod_dav_svn and svn1.2
i configured apache by following the instructions according to the svn
online book at tigris.

i keep getting the error :
[Tue Jun 14 16:18:09 2005] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (20014)Error
string not specified yet: Can't open file
'/var/svn/rep/mysource/format': Permission denied

in the apache logs, whenever i try to access the repository.

I have apache running as the user "svn" and my svn dir is owned by the
user and group "svn" The file permissions are fine.

I think the svn book has forgotten some critical info needed to
configure apache, because so many people have had this problem.

i'm running on redhat enterprise 4.0

thanks!
