hot-backup vs svnadmin dump

Hi. I am in the process of automating a backup and recovery and would
like to know what is best for complete restoration of the repository.
The machines have different os's so just want to ensure I do not run
into snags.

My repository is hosted on an mac osx machine. I would prefer to do cron
hot-backups and unarchive my repository without any consequences to a
CentOS machine in event of failure. Will I run into any trouble with
this scenario? Would it be better to do a dump and then load the dump
file to a new repository on the Linux box. I guess I am questioning
whether these method are os agnostic and if not how to work around this.
Many thanks.

Regards,
David
