Local SVN & Capistrano 2.0

Everything is working well in my svn repository. I am able to connect to my server by using "cap deploy", but receive this error message:

** [out] svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL ** svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///Users/myusername/svn/ simpleblog2/trunk'

Any ideas how to work around this?

Alternatively, since you are using Capistrano 2.0 you could use the 'copy' deployment method. If you add

set :deploy_via, :copy

to your deploy.rb then Capistrano will checkout the sources locally, tar them up and use sftp to copy them to the server.
