svnadmin: Mismatched FS module version for 'bdb': found 1.4.2, expected 1.3.2

From: Martin Marconcini <martin_at_marconcini.com.ar>
Date: 2006-11-15 14:10:27 CET

Hello list and forgive me for the long post,

I have compiled Subversion from source since 1.X; I normally download
the tar.gz (now deps too), and perform the basic:

** "kill" any running repository **
make install

and it just works (tm).

I use the Svn FS backend and not BerkeleyDB. The OS is Linux Fedora
Core 1.

However this time I am experiencing a strange behaviour. After the
usual configure/make/make install, everything runs ok (clients
connecting from Windows/Mac OS X can commit, browse, etc.); I wanted
to "dump/reload" my repo to make my repo smaller (thanks to
improvements in 1.4.X). My repo was 1.3.2 before being "touched" by
1.4.x clients. So when running svnadmin help (I always re-read that
before any operation, just in case i forget something) I got these...

Look at these outputs:

# svnadmin help
svnadmin: Mismatched FS module version for 'bdb': found 1.4.2,
expected 1.3.2

# svnserve --version
svn: Mismatched FS module version for 'bdb': found 1.4.2, expected 1.3.2

# svn --version
svn, version 1.4.2 (r22196)
    compiled Nov 15 2006, 11:53:17

Copyright (C) 2000-2006 CollabNet.
Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.tigris.org/
This product includes software developed by CollabNet (http://

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV)
   - handles 'http' scheme
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network
   - handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
   - handles 'file' scheme

So I performed the usual "seek" the library, and found out that:

# locate libsvn_fs_base-1.so

The first four are the original SOURCE code i compiled for svn1.3.2
(i keep the entire tree just in case) ;)

I ran updatedb and to my surprise this lib didn't appear in the
Subversion 1.4.2 tree. Again, comparing those in /usr/local/lib/*
with the ones in the 1.3.2 tree shows that the libs are the same!
Which explains the error.

My question is, what am I supposed to do with these "old" libraries?
If I remove them, will Subversion continue working? Why aren't these
included in the new tree (1.4.2) ? Have they been replaced in 1.4.X?

For what is worth:

# which svn

Another curious thing is that there's now a libsvn_fs_fs instead of
base (notice the build time, Nov15 -> today) whereas I built 1.3.2 on
sept 5th.

The svnserve is up and running (repository path has been
intentionally modified to protect the innocent ;) ):

# ps -ax | grep svn
17427 ? S 0:00 svnserve -r /path/to/my/repo -d

I am puzzled and now sure how to proceed… any ideas or hints will be
