Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

…Subversion install…so many nerve cells are dead and the thing still does
not work over the network…can somebody help?

Here is what I did: 1) downloaded subversion and supporting packages from
sunfree.com for SPARC/Solaris 9. 2) package add worked fine, ldd svn
worked fine = everything match. 3) created repository with svnadmin
create , imported project with file:/// = check in check out works fine
(repo location sas/svnrepos)

4) went to configure Apache2 (note apache was already installed).
        Added following lines to config file:


        LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
        LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

Changed user and group to reflect user and group that the repository was
created with.

Plus added location lines:

        <Location /repos>
                  DAV svn
                 SVNPath /sas/svnrepos
        </Location>
THere is only one repository in sas/svnrepos = crma

5) Recycled Apache with stop/start.

Tried to check out repository over the network with
Svn co http://hostname/repos
Svn co http://hostname/repos/crma/trunk (crma - project name)

Does not work: getting following error
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/repos'
svn: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

This is the log:

Does anybody have any idea besides privileges what could cause this and
what configuration changes should be performed?

Thank you in advance,
