when I try to create a new repository ("mkdir tmp" and "svnadmin create
tmp") it just hangs, too!
So I killed (after one hour) the process with "kill -9 ..." (-9 is
necessary) and it looks like:

---- ls -la tmp start ----
drwxr-xr-x 7 yk users 4096 Aug 23 09:37 .

so I tried "svnadmin recover tmp":

---- svnadmin recover tmp start ----
Repository lock acquired.
Please wait; recovering the repository may take some time...

Recovery completed.
svn: Corrupt DB: revision 0 missing from 'revisions' table, in filesystem
---- svnadmin recover tmp end ----

I get the same message when I kill the create after 10 secconds and after 1
so I guess there is a problem creating/filling the BDB-tables.

A friend told me that the aliases-Database also uses BDB,
so I edited /etc/aliases and rebuild it with newaliases and it works fine!
I think it's not a BDB problem right? (svn checkin works also WITHOUT a

Thanks in advance,
