I'm attempting to get svnserve running on OS X Server 10.8.
I have successfully installed the client and server (using Fink).
When starting svnserve from the command line ("svnserve -d -r /Groups/svn"), the client lists the repository contents successfully.
When I start svnserve via launchd as specified in the Red Book, the client reports: Malformed network data.
I believe I have the correct launchd .plist.
I have tried this with SVN version 1.7.5 and 1.6.18. Both can connect OK from command line, but report Malformed Network Data for launchd invocation.
