Following various tutorials, I've got svn running via a xinetd.d configuration for svnserve. I'm trying to checkout locally to test the svn setup, but when I try to commit any files to the svn repo, I get a Permission denied error. I created an svn group and added my user account to it, and then I made the svn directory owned by the svn group and set file permissions to 774, but still I get this error.
What could be going wrong? I seem to be able to checkout just fine.
