Hi all:

   I want to store the repository on a NFS storage allocation but it
fail. If I copy the repository to the local file system it runs
smoothly. What's go on?

[FAQ] on http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html
If you are using the FSFS repository back end, then storing the
repository on a modern NFS server (i.e., one that supports locking)
should be fine.

Working copies can be stored on NFS (one common scenario is when your
home directory is on a NFS server). On Linux NFS servers, due to the
volume of renames used internally in Subversion when checking out
files, some users have reported that 'subtree checking' should be
disabled (it's enabled by default). Please see NFS Howto Server Guide
and exports(5) for more information on how to disable subtree
