RE: Can't create a new repository on Centos 5.2 with SVN 1.6

Thank you. That pointed me in the right direction. Turns out that I hadn't started the nfslock service. The error message was complaining about database locks, so it kinda started me down the wrong path. Now I can create repositories successfully on the nfs mount.
Thanks again!

FSFS-based Subversion repositories can be stored on NFS, if the NFS
implementation handles locking properly. It sounds like yours might not.
