Why not? What command did you execute? What happened? This should work.

No. Well, you can do a reverse merge:


but that involves having a local working copy, and getting a working
one is the whole problem we're trying to solve.

You could "svnadmin dump" up thru the revision you do want to keep,
delete the repository, create a new empty repository, and then
"svnadmin load" the dumpfile back in. If you do this, be sure that
you really do want to permanently lose everything after that revision
you dumped, and also be sure that you delete all existing working
copies and check out new ones.
