svn: Can't create directory error

Recently I got a "svn: Can't create directory" error when I was setting
up a repository and attempted an import. I did the suggested solutions
(special group for permissions, umask, ensuring apache executing httpd,
etc.). It ended up being necessary to disable SELINUX on the Linux
Fedora box.
On the command line you just run "setenforce 0" to disable SELINUX as a
test. Then rerun the svn command.

To make this permanent you have to edit each of the kernel lines in
/etc/grub.conf by adding "selinux=0" to the end of each line that
begins with "kernel". Then, reboot.
