The URL of the repository is stored within the working copy at the
time that you check it out. It's not necessary (or possible) to
specify the repository URL in the commit command itself.

I would assume that the first error message you got is telling you
the truth: that you aren't authorized to commit to the repository. Is
authorization set up on the repository? What username and password
are you logging in with, or if you did not specify a username and
password when committing, then it's already cached in ~/.subversion/
auth so check the appropriate file there, maybe even remove that file
and commit again (which will now prompt you again for the username
and password).
