Help with corrupted repository

From: Nicholas Walker <NWalker_at_dialogue-marketing.com>

I have a repository that has been around for about 7 years without being
actively maintained. We're trying to migrate the repository to a
different server, and clean up the repository.


When doing an svnadmin dump or verify, there are 38 revisions that
report a checksum mismatch. The repository is using Berkeley DB. I
have tried skipping the revisions, and loading into many different dump
files, and then re-loading, but some of the skipped revisions are
referenced by other revisions, and re-loading generates an error.


I have found some possible work around's using the fsfs db, but can't
find a way to repair a Berkeley db.


We are running currently version 1.4.4.


I have searched google endlessly for two days trying out different
things but I haven't been able to find a resolution.


Is there any way for svnadmin dump to ignore the fact that there was a
checksum failure, or anyway to modify/repair the revision in Berkeley


I would appreciate any ones help in pointing me in the right direction.
