Dear users,

as the subject already says, i'm trying to install subversion 1.3.1
under SuSe Linux 9.3. I'm pretty new to linux and have only basic
I've tried installing subversion in a veriety of ways. With SSL,
without, with latest versions of neon and apache, with the versions
packed into the tarball. Either my combinations didn't work at all
or i get presented with this error message when trying to commit any
data from my local machine.

 subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:826: (apr_err=22)
 svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/cpp'
 subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:389: (apr_err=22)
 svn: Can't set position pointer in file
  '/usr/local/svn/repos/cpp/db/revs/0': Invalid argument
My current working installation is running with apache and ssl.
I can connect to the server over both https and http but am getting
the same error. I tried using svn_serve which only leads to the same

My desired repository location is /usr/local/svn/repos/*. This folder
(and all subfolder) are owned by the same user running apache (daemon).
For testing purposed i also applied chmod -R 777 to the repos folder.

To wrap this up, the packges i am using are the following:
 OpenSSL - openssl-0.9.8b.tar.gz
 Berkeley DB - db-4.4.20.tar.gz
 Apache HTTPD - httpd-2.2.2.tar.gz
 Subversion - subversion-1.3.1.tar.gz
If any more information is required i'd be happy to provide it.

Thanks in advance
