RE: issue 1145 is resolved in subserve version 1.4.0?

Hi Erik,

Thanks for your response. I had a look at that website and my config
looks the same!

So I've run the server directly from the command line using the svnserve
-d and this seems to work fine.

Therefore, this may be a bug in svnserve if I have not made a config.
error.

Cheers,
James

It probably means xinetd is configured correctly to start svnserve,
but svnserve isn't finding the arguments it requires on the command
line. Try removing 'svnserve' from the server_args line as suggested
in http://www.unix-girl.com/blog/archives/001486.html
