RE: svn v1.5.1 via apache 2.0.63 on solaris "Final line in revision file longer than 64 characters"

AFAIK you need Apache 2.2 to run with SVN 1.5. I have tried to find the page on the Subversion site where it states that but I couldn't. I'm pretty sure that's the case though as one of the main reason I'm delaying deploying 1.5 in my company is that I can't seem to be able to build Apache 2.2 on my server.

A bit more info... I removed the svn 1.5.1 install, built 1.4.6 (to same location), recreated the databases... restarted apache, and viola, the repositories are accessible just fine under apache (http protocol via both web-browsers and tortoise).

I would like to use the later 1.5.1 version, ideas?

Thanks much,

I'm having trouble with a newly built subvesion 1.5.1 server. When I run the svnserve process, access the the test database works just fine. When I try access via apache through either a web-browser using dav or tortoise client I get the errors noted (these are copied from the apache log, the last error is what I see in tortoise).

[Tue Aug 05 16:18:14 2008] [error] [client] Could not fetch resource information. [500, #0]
[Tue Aug 05 16:18:14 2008] [error] [client] Could not open the root of the repository [500, #160004]

This is on a sparc solaris 10 system. The freshly built Apache version is 2.0.63.

My apache config looks like this as a starting config to ensure things work:

<Location /svntest>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /home/whitson/svntestdbs/test01

I create the db using (on the sever) svnadmin creaetdb test01 while in the svntestdbs folder.

As mentioned, I can launch the svnserve from this svn server installation, serve up the svntestdbs as the root (as follows) and all works just fine:
    svnserve --daemon --root /home/whitson/svntestdbs

My tortoise clients (on different systems than the server) access via the svn protocol just fine. Nothing seems to be able to access the repository vi httpd (apache).

Any ideas?

Thanks much,
