[PhillyOnRails] Trac + SVN

I am trying to set up Trac on my client's own (SUSE 10) server, and hitting a bunch of problems. I have Trac running just fine, behind mod_python and Apache 2.2 -- as long as I don't tell it precisely where the svn repository is. When I do, trac-admin works as expected to create a new trac, but when I view the trac through the web, I get errors on every page.

Has anyone here done this, on this specific version of LInux, and can anyone offer me some suggestions in a cookbook style? I am thinking that the problem is a mis-match between the Apache libraries and the Python libraries.

Error from the home page:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/trac/web/", line 406, in dispatch_request
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/trac/web/", line 191, in dispatch
chosen_handler = self._pre_process_request(req, chosen_handler)
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/trac/web/", line 263, in _pre_process_request
chosen_handler = f.pre_process_request(req, chosen_handler)

raise TracError('Unsupported version control system "%s". '
TracError: Unsupported version control system "svn". Check that the Python bindings for "svn" are correctly installed.

I've tried quite a few of the suggestions from the TracAdmin book (setting various environment variables), none of which have any effect.

Thanks in advance,
