I've installed SVN and have it running with webdav. Everything seems ok but I get this error when I try to import my initial directory structure:

# svn import /tmp/subversion-layout/
svn: Could not use external editor to fetch log message; consider setting the $S                                                                                    VN_EDITOR environment variable or using the --message (-m) or --file (-F) option                                                                                    s
svn: None of the environment variables SVN_EDITOR, VISUAL or EDITOR are set, and                                                                                     no 'editor-cmd' run-time configuration option was found

Any ideas?

You can either set the SVN_EDITOR variable or you can just add a -m to the SVN followed by a message. Subversion requires a message for import. Change your SVN command to:

# svn import /tmp/subversion-layout/ -m Some Message
