Is /usr/local/svn a repository (that is, did you run "svnadmin
create /usr/local/svn"), or is it a directory which contains several
repositories (that is, "mkdir /usr/local/svn; svnadmin create /usr/

If the former, you need to change SVNParentPath to read SVNPath.
If the latter, you need to specify in the URL the name of the
repository you want to check out, for example http://myserver:8000/
