If you have a single repository (as in, you used "svnadmin create /
var/www/svn" to create it) then you should use SVNPath, not
SVNParentPath in the Apache directives.

<Location /svn>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /var/www/svn


SVNParentPath is for when you have several repositories all within
the same directory on the server, as in:

mkdir /var/www/svn
svnadmin create /var/www/svn/repo1
svnadmin create /var/www/svn/repo2
svnadmin create /var/www/svn/repo3

And then you would need to specify the repository name in the URL, e.g.

svn import test http://xx.xx.xx.xx/svn/repo2 -m "test initial import"
