Re: svnadmin hangs when creating Berkeley repository on NTFS-3G partition

why would you want to do such a thing? To have the repository
available on windows and linux in a dual boot environment? In that
case, just give up - subversion repositories are not transportable
between architectures and operating systems. In case you need to move
a repository from one machine to another, you'll have to use the dump
format that is architecture independent.
