In inetd mode, you don't start svnserve. Inetd does it for you.

However, you have to configure inetd to know about svn, otherwise you get the behaviour you're experiencing.

Depending on if you have inetd or xinetd, you have to configure them:


Add to /etc/inetd.conf:

svn stream tcp nowait <userid_your_repo_belongs_to> /usr/local/bin/svnserve -i -r /something

Then reload inetd to start the service.

For xinetd, you need something similar, but I can't write that config file off the top of my head. ;-)

It should be, for my inetd.conf to work... ;-)

I hope this helps.
