I am unable to start svnserve as a service. If I invoke (as root) 'svnserve -d -r /path/to/repository' it works fine, but when I invoke 'service svnserve start' it reports [Failed]. Can anyone please help me?

That is all that is in /var/log/messages.
The repository I am trying to connect to is /usr/local/repositories. My xinet.d svnserve file is as follows:
# default: off
# description: svnserve is the server part of Subversion.
disable = no
port = 3690
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = svn
server = /usr/bin/svnserve
server_args = -i -r /usr/local/repositories
Yeah, I was just saying there is no inid.d script for svnserve in /etc/init.d. Well I want it to run when I boot up the computer, I do not want to have to manually start it every time I boot it. Any idea why it is failing to run as a service?
