May be I'm wrong, Uli, but what I see is:

1. I do not have Apache installed, (I'm running Tomcat, but there is no
servlet-based server for subversion)

2. There is no sign that svnserve was started (ps ax, grep svn * in

3. /etc/inetd.conf does not contain an entry for svnserve

4. I do not have xinetd installed

I have the subversion package installed (apt-get install subversion) and
I can communicate with the server over the internet, however, only by
svn+ssh://, while svn:// does not work.
