RE: Is my repository hosed?

Try to create an FSFS repository (if you created a new one using 1.2.3,
then you should have this by default) as it is more stable that the
database backend.

Good luck,

Thanks for the tip. I already did a dump/load and that seemed to fix
my problem. However I did still have my old repository around so I
did a verify and it was ok.

It is disappointing that a power outage on a quiet repository (I am
the only user) would hose the repo. and that recover reports success
when it obviously didn't do the job.

I'll also try the Sleepycat tool to see what it uncovers.

Thanks again for you response.
