svn repo and rights Q

I can checkout frm my repository, but can't check back in. I get thsi 
error:
vn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't create directory '/usr/local/svn/db/transactions/1-1.txn': 
Permission denied

I googled to see if I could find an answer, but all I found were posts 
like this:
"Its the rights on your repository"
"Oh yeah thanks, I got it working now"

But no one says what they did to get it working. I see on my 
transactions directory, these rights are set:
rwxr-sr-x 2 lorenzo users 48 Dec 25 10:58 transactions

I changed them to:
rwxrwSrwx 2 lorenzo users 48 Dec 25 10:58 transactions

But I get an error on the write-lock directory. Of course I could just 
go through and change the rights everytime I get a rights failure, but 
I'd rather get a more definitive answer before I botch my repo.
TIA

Here's the answer to my own question. I don't know how I missed this page:

aquiring repo with svn
git svn clone http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby/branches/ruby_1_9_1 Pulling approx 400Mb! Is there any way I can pull a smaller amount of data?

Error on SVN repo access
Hi All! I'm trying to access MINIX3's SVS repository but with no success. Web-access to https://gforge.cs.vu.nl/plugins/scmsvn/viewcvs.php/?root=minix returns "An Exception" error in server script.

Free CVS/SVN online repos?
Hi, I was wondering if there are any providers which offer SVN or CVS repositories online, just like you can get webspace for free. I am working on a project and I often find myself copying around source files from one computer to another, that's a pain. I also had a local CVS set up on my machine, but when it's offline I can't access the sources from my notebook, especially not when I'm at university. Furthermore, I'd also like other people to be able to download the newest sources and design docs. I'm not sure... does sourceforge offer that kind of service? Or...

Q: How to audit a user and thier rights?
I was asked how to verify what tables, privs, and such a particular oracle user had. Short of showing the scripts I used to create the user, how do I actually go back in and verify/list all rights and to what?

How fast and big do SVN repos grow?
Hi, in the quest of finding free online hosts for source code control systems like CVS and SVN, I stumbled across www.cvsdude.com, which offers a free 2MB SVN/CVS repository to anyone. However, isn't 2MB next to nothing? I remember CVS repos growing quite fast, even for small source controlled programs. Before registering I want to make sure if this isn't just their way of catching potential customers. 2MB of plain source code would be sufficient for me, but the administrative files probably take up way more than just that I guess and I don't want to find myself hitting the...

[tao-users] svn repo and MPC
ACE / TAO version: 5.5.2/1.5.2 I just checked out the x.5.2 release from subversion: svn co svn://svn.dre.vanderbilt.edu/DOC/Middleware/tags/ACE+TAO+CIAO-1_5_2 ACE_wrappers and the ACE_wrappers/MPC directory seems to be missing. Is this an oversight? Or must I checkout MPC from OCI's repo separately (via "cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.ociweb.com:/cvs co MPC" as per the ACE_wrappers/bin/MakeProjectCreator/README directions)? Thanks, Matt ...
