Subversion repositories can either be "BDB" (BerkeleyDB) or "FSFS" (a
file-based database format designed for Subversion). FSFS is newer
and simpler. BDB can be problematic if not set up exactly right. FSFS
became the default in Subversion 1.2.0; before that, BDB was the
default. To switch your repository from one type to the other, you
can dump and load. See the FAQ:
