RE: More on possible client authentication

Thanks for your reply.

I thought APR is only relevant when using apache and access repositories
using http.
Currently I only access the repository using svn and file.
It APR or random number generator device still relevant in this case?
I vaguely remember seeing some messages about the random number generator
when the UML starts up.

Thanks once again for your help

One possibility would be that it's taking a long time to generate
random bytes. If you machine doesn't have a suitable source of
entrypy, /dev/random could be quite slow. You might try recompiling
APR and telling it to use /dev/urandom (via the --with-devrandom flag
to configure).
