' Could not open the requested SVN filesystem'

From: Alexander Frinks <a.a.frings_at_web.de>

Dear folks,

sorry for asking,

but i've read all 16 entries on "' Could not open the requested SVN filesystem'"
the FAQ to all "access errors" an have done some research on the internet to the toppic.

I think, it must again be a problem with permissions, but i am completely mislead on something.

if anybody is interested, here my configuration

*) SuSE 10.2
*) svn --version
svn, version 1.4.0 (r21228)
   compiled Nov 27 2006, 22:09:13
*) Fonttype Configuration for apache2 WebServer is

*) apache2 Server running under permission wwwrun (user) www (group)
*) /etc/apache2/conf.d/subversion.conf ## a splitted httpd.conf configuration and looking like

<IfModule mod_dav_svn.c>
< Location /toll>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /mnt/srv/svn/toll
   # path to the NOT only repository, but used
   # Limit write permission to list of valid users.
         ... snip ... completely commented, so unused

I am able to import add commit delete any files of my own
with any svn <command> file:///location/to/repository

svn list file:///mnt/srv/svn/toll

also, i checked THE PERMISSIONs to the apache-server (once after creating a repository, once
after updating)n list file:///mnt/srv/svn/tol

find /mnt/srv/svn/toll - ls

 ... snip ...
46207395 0 drwxr-xr-x 6 wwwrun www 87 May 29 16:06 /mnt/srv/svn/toll/.svn
62925452 4 -r--r--r-- 1 wwwrun www 656 May 29 16:06 /mnt/srv/svn/toll/.svn/entries
46207400 4 -r--r--r-- 1 wwwrun www 2 May 29 16:03 /mnt/srv/svn/toll/.svn/format
62925460 0 -rw-r--r-- 1 wwwrun www 0 May 29 16:03 /mnt/srv/svn/toll/out.c
62925461 4 -rw-r--r-- 1 wwwrun www 31 May 29 16:03 /mnt/srv/svn/toll/Makefile
4233294 4 -rw-r--r-- 1 wwwrun www 85 May 29 16:04 /mnt/srv/svn/toll/file.c
4233293 12 -rwxr-xr-x 1 wwwrun www 9538 May 29 16:04 /mnt/srv/svn/toll/pro

The Command leads to:
sudo -u wwwrun svn cat file:///mnt list file:///mnt/srv/svn/to/srv/svn/toll/file.c
#include <stdio.h>
int main (void) { fprintf(stdout,"Goodbye CVS\n"); return 0; }

So i think, i am legally asking for read permissions as apache-user, and i am allowed to do this.
But otherwise
sudo -u wwwrun svn cat http://sachmet/svn/toll/file.c
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/toll/file.c'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/toll/file.c': 405 Method Not Allowed (http://sachmet)

Till now, i would have to switch the permissions to somewhat, and it would work, as all other
answers lead to a working configuration. But not in my case.
Here something strange happened as root-user:

svn cat http://sachmet/toll/file.c
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/toll/file.c'
svn: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

Same errormessages appears at /var/log/apache2/error-msg

MY GUESS so far:

First apache2 is able to locate the handling of the tree /mnt/srv/svn/toll to the DAV Module
(because not valid paths are handled as ERROR code 403 (forbidden) 404(not valid)
after that, i get a 500 (HTTP_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR) in error-log:
 .. snip ... "PROPFIND /toll/file.c HTTP/1.1" 500 235 "-" "SVN/1.4.0 (r21228) neon/0.26.1"

I am desperate, but i wo'ont give up. Can anybody pleas help me, i think, i am missing
some obviously configuration tasks.
