This post clearly depicted the very exact issue I was encountering when trying to access my SVN server that was powered by VisualSVN. In a nutshell, it was the version of ‘libneon’ that was the culprit. It seems to be that ‘libneon’ was compiled with GnuTLS, which is much stricter than its OpenSSL counterpart. In any event, all it took to fix was:
$ sudo apt-get install libneon27
Once the lib is installed, execute the following commands:
$ sudo mv /usr/lib/libneon-gnutls.so.27 /usr/lib/libneon-gnutls.so.27.old
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libneon.so.27 /usr/lib/libneon-gnutls.so.27
Finally, close and re-open your SVN client applications and enjoy SVN euphoria.
