RE: SVN dump/load Question

Ok, so I took a dump from my old subversion server v1.08 with a Berkeley DB back-end, gzipped it and transferred it via scp to my new subversion server v1.32 that was compiled without Berkeley DB

I created a new repo:
svnadmin create --fs-type=fsfs /var/svn/repo

And then loaded my dump file [/var/svn/svn.dump]:
svnadmin load /var/svn/repo < /var/svn/svn.dump

This is what I get:

subversion02:/var/svn# svnadmin load /var/svn/repo/ < svn.dump
<<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 1
     * adding path : .dummy ... done.
svnadmin: Can't open directory '/var/svn/repo/db/transactions/0-1.txn/': No such file or directory

Any ideas?

And on an OT note: Dumps are also better for backups, because the software (if it's smart enough) can make incremental backup of the dumped file.
