Thanks for the reply.  That got me pointed in the right direction.  I'm going to write down what happened for the next poor sap. :)

Using the instructions here:


That got me an out of date rpmforge-release module (0.5.1-1.el5.rf).  I was able to update to the latest (0.5.2-2.el5.rf) using:

yum --enablerepo=rpmforge update rpmforge-release

Unfortunately rpmforge-extras still did not work.  I then noticed that I had a rpmforge.repo.rpmnew in /etc/yum.repos.d.  I was able to update rpmforge.repo from this.  In fact I just overwrote what I had and reset enabled = 0.

>From there, I was able to run:

yum --enablerepo=rpmforge-extras --disablerepo=rhel-x86_64-server-5 install subversion mod_dav_svn

And it worked like a champ.

Thanks for the help!
