Hi Michal,

Start -> All Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management
(or just right click on my computer and select manage)

System Tools -> Event Viewer -> System

Hard to tell without reading that error, but if your path to the repository
root has spaces in it, ensure it is quoted when configuring the service.

I gather running svnserve without a service was working as expected?
(i.e. you could checkout/update/commit)

Nice to see this in 1.4, but I'm a little surprised that only the LocalSystem
account is mentioned. We've been running svnserve under Local Service
for over a year now and I believe it (or Network Service) are preferred, due
to their reduced privileges when compared to LocalSystem.


I appreciate exploits for Subversion are few and far between (I can only
recall reading about one, and that was several years ago now), but
LocalSystem has Administrator rights if an exploit is found.
