Cannot open ra_local session?

Hello,

Newbie, following page 6 of the Version Control with Subversion book.:

 

OS Windows XP

Version: subversion 1.3

 

1) I installed the 1.3 software using the svn-1.3.0-setup.exe.

 

2) I created a directory called subversroot under C:/ eg:
C:/subversroot

 

3) I created C:/tmp/project/branches ...
C:/tmp/project/tags ... etc, as the book states.

 

4) When I try executing the svn import command see below, I get
the error message "Unable to open an ra_local session to URL"

 

5) See below for exact commands.

 

Thanks,

 

 

bash-3.00$ synadmin create subversroot/

bash: synadmin: command not found

bash-3.00$ svnadmin create subversroot

bash-3.00$ ls subversroot

README.txt conf dav db format hooks locks

bash-3.00$

bash-3.00$

bash-3.00$ svn import tmp/project file:///subversroot -m "initial
import"
