I had Subversion working for a while on my Dreamhost shared account, having installed the binaries myself. However, a day ago I started getting the error: "Can't get shared lock on file '/home/locke61dv/SVNREPOS/locks/db.lock: no locks available".
At this time I learned that DH had installed their own version of Subversion (yay!) and tried getting rid of my own repository & binaries, so that "which svn" pointed to the DH copy. Except that... I could create new repositories, but these repositories reported the same locking error! Any suggestions?
