I installed git on Ubuntu 10.04 at home in an attempt to have a local repository for my powershell code. It worked upon installation, but I attempted to commit and push some updates and it appeared I had lost permissions some how (likely after the last round of patching).
GitGUI would puke:
fatal: failed to write objectPushing to git@arti:/home/git/repositories/powershell.giterror: unpack failed: unpack-objects abnormal exitTo git@arti:/home/git/repositories/powershell.git ! [remote rejected] master -> master (n/a (unpacker error))error: failed to push some refs to 'git@arti:/home/git/repositories/powershell.git'
GITBash would give me:
fatal: the remote end hung up unexpectedly
On my Ubuntu server I could
ls -lah /home/git/repositories/powershell.git/objects
and see that ROOT had permissions on some of the files.
chown -R git:git objects
gave the user:group permissions back...And I was able to push! Success!
