Big problem with my SVN-repository

Hello support,

i have a problem with my repository.
Here is, what I reached with the tools after reading the hints from your

(I also posted it to comp.databases.berkeley-db but now answer occured)
Hello newsgroup,

I have an uncomfortable problem: About 4 weeks ago our RAID-4-Array
degraded and after our admin regocnized that one hard disk failed. The
admin did his best to get the data back - and it nearly worked. Now I
have one remaining problem with my SVN-repository.
It is not working now because of an internal problem (which surely was
produced by that data reconstructing and so on).
I tried svnadmin verify and recover (which should equal the command
from db_recover and so on), and I got messages, which tell me, that the
database is not okay, and that I should start recover - which is
extremely helpful when one is already running recover...
Okay, here are the results:

>>> SNIP from console:

svnadmin recover .
svn: Can't open file 'format': Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
gammaray:/home/ebeling# svnadmin recover mySVNROOT/
Exklusiven Zugriff auf das Projektarchiv erlangt
Bitte warten, die Wiederherstellung des Projektarchivs kann einige Zeit
svn: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
svn: bdb: Ignoring log file: mySVNROOT/db/log.0000000005: magic number
20646150, not 40988
svn: bdb: Invalid log file: log.0000000005: Das Argument ist
svn: bdb: PANIC: Das Argument ist ung?\252ltig
svn: bdb: PANIC: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery

if I try it with native db tools it looks like this:

>>> SBUO from console:

db4.2_recover -c
db_recover: Ignoring log file: log.0000000005: magic number 20646150,
not 40988
db_recover: Invalid log file: log.0000000005: Invalid argument
db_recover: PANIC: Invalid argument
db_recover: PANIC: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
db_recover: DB_ENV->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database

Okay, I'm sorry, I do not exactly know which DB-Version was used - it
was created with tortoise-svn.

I would be very happy if anyone here could help.

Thanks in advance,

Bastian Ebeling

It would be glad, if you can help me.
