What OS are you running on? Does your OS have the SELinux feature,
and is it turned on? If so, have you used the chcon command to allow
access to the repository? See the FAQ:


What version of Subversion are you using?

What repository filesystem path is printed in the error message? Is
it the same one you changed ownership and permissions on?
