I’ve been struggling in getting WedDav to work with my Subversion repository that’s installed on my home folder. The problem lies with the way Ubuntu 9.10 encrypts the home folder. There seems to be no way around to the permission issues with WedDav. There are two things you can do: you can move your repository outside your home folder, or choose not to encrypt your home folder when installing Ubuntu. Anyways, encrypting your home folder is a nice feature, but it also brings some potential issues.
