Description of problem:
Cannot integrate subversion into Apache because of an apparent error
in the mod_dav_svn-0.32.1-1 package. Starting Apache with mod_dav_svn
installed leads to the following errors:
Feb 1 16:27:44 gateway httpd: Cannot load
/etc/httpd/modules/mod_dav_svn.so into server:
/etc/httpd/modules/mod_dav_svn.so: undefined symbol: dav_xml_get_cdata
Feb 1 16:27:44 gateway httpd: httpd startup failed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install mod_dav_svn
2. service httpd start
3. tail /var/log/messages to view errors
Actual Results: Apache fails to start because of errors.
Expected Results: Apache should run, and include support for subversion.
LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/mod_dav_fs.so
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so
This error should only occur when mod_dav_svn is loaded before
mod_dav.so. Can you attach your complete httpd.conf, and check that the
appears *after* the LoadModule lines?
That fixed the problem. It appears the problem is caused when you
upgrade from Red Hat 8.0 to Fedora Core 1, because the Red Hat 8.0
httpd.conf file has the Include directives BEFORE the Loadodule lines.

The same problem when upgrade from RH 9 to FC1.
I got bitten by this one too at some point, but really can't think of
an easy way of fixing it without going messing with the existing flat
file httpd.conf... which doesn't sound like a bright idea.
Or would it be possible to add a few lines to the subversion
httpd/conf.d/ file in order to do something like "if the dav module
isn't loaded, load it now"? That is, of course, if trying to load it
again later doesn't produce an error.
Per Matthias' comment it's really not easy to fix this without
automatic munging of httpd.conf, which is not really desirable. It's
simply the case that after an upgrade sometimes the config files will
need some manual tweaking, unfortunately.
