That's strange.

Did you create the authentication directories, as in the "install" target of the
Makefile? (broken because of mailer)

        mkdir -p /etc/fsvs /var/spool/fsvs $(bindir)
                  /etc/fsvs/auth/svn.simple /etc/fsvs/auth/svn.ssl.server

That's needed so that the subversion libraries have a place to store the authentication

Alternatively you could try to use
    FSVS_WAA= .... fsvs -o config_dir=$HOME/.subversion/ sync-repos

That should use the already stored data.

Hmmm ... my http/https DAV testing is very limited.
Possibly it needs some information that FSVS doesn't currently provide?

Could you re-run with -d, and send me the last 20 lines, please?

Not yet ;-)

As you're using http://localhost, does a sync-repos work for file:///?



Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
