This looks like one of the fsfs revision files is corrupt. Does the
error message tell you something more, like which revision file it has
problems reading?

Do you access the repository with file:// url's or do you have a
svnserve or apache installed locally?

There's a script to fix corrupt fsfs revision files, you can find it
here: http://www.szakmeister.net/blog/?page_id=16 . It doesn't claim to
fix all problems, and I strongly advise to back up any file before you
run that script on it.

If that script doesn't work you'll have to restore from your last backup.

hope this helps,
