403 with svn+apache on fedora core 10

From: Eben <eben_at_bakedbean.net>

The problem: svn co http://localhost/svn reports:
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn': 403 Forbidden (http://localhost)

Apache's error log shows:
[Sat Jan 10 07:31:45 2009] [error] [client] Could not fetch
resource information. [403, #0]
[Sat Jan 10 07:31:45 2009] [error] [client] (2)No such file
or directory: The URI does not contain the name of a repository. [403,

I've installed the base FC10 desktop, and all packages using yum. Apache
2.2.10, svn 1.5.4. Firewall and SELinux are completely disabled. I am
not running mod_security, nor mod_evasive.

Following the various tutorials that are out there I did the following:

1. I created a repository at /home/svn using svnadmin (svnadmin create
2. Imported some default folders (svn import /tmp/newsvn
file:///home/svn -m “initial import”).
3. I then set permissions: chown -R apache.apache /home/svn
4. Created htpasswd file in /etc/httpd/passwd with a valid user and
password, verified that everything was generated as expected.
5. Modified subversion.conf as follows:
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNParentPath /home/svn
# # Limit write permission to list of valid users.
# Require SSL connection for password protection.
# SSLRequireSSL
AuthType Basic
AuthName "SVN"
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/passwd/passwords
Require valid-user

Any suggestions are appreciated
