I had next to no knowledge of Linux or servers (and no SysAdmin to help
me) when I set up our test Subversion server on a RH9 box. I found the
SVN book, and in particular the Repository Administration section, very
helpful and easy to follow. It allowed me to get the repositories up
and running through Apache, plus I got the email commit notifications
working quite easily. I just followed the guide step by step, and I, a
self-confessed newbie at Linux stuff, successfully got a Subversion
server with multiple repositories running for several different projects
in the one company.

In your post-commit file, do you provide the full path to
commit-email.pl? Remember that when SVN executes post-commit, there is
no environment or current directory. Provide the full path to everything.
