Oh...it took me a minute of staring at it to figure out what was wrong.
My first impression was that you were saying that the 1.2.3 version
required db42 which it doesn't.

What it is saying is that you currently have db42 installed and the new
1.2.3 one conflicts with that. So AFTER you do the svnadmin
dump on the old repository then "rpm -e db42" and the old subversion
RPM(s) and then install the new one(s) and do the "svnadmin
create" and "svnadmin load".

(Of course make backups of everything before you do this, just in case,
but I've never had any problems).

Hope this helps.
