Subject: Re: svnadmin create repo/path - Error

        I was trying to create a repository with this command.
        svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs newrepo
        But, it is giving error as follows.
        svnadmin: Repository creation failed
        svnadmin: Creating db lock file
        svnadmin: Can't open file 'newrepo/locks/db.lock': Permission denied
        My SVN version is 1.5.6.
        The OS is Solaris 8
        Anybody have any idea/resolution ?

        Thanks in advance,

According to 'Version Control with Subversion', chapter 5, section 'Creating and Configuration Your Repository', the command should resemble:

   svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs /var/svn/repos
Where you specify the path to your repository in place of "/var/svn/repos". It does not understand your current location.
