Crash on selecting git binary

Reported by coordinated | March 15th, 2009 @ 03:36 PM

Have just started using GitX, and it looks really promising :-)

I found a couple of bugs...

I'm using 10.5.6 (latest updates). I downloaded GitX 0.6.1, dragged the .app to Applications, started it, selected preferences, saw that it hadn't found MacPorts' git (/opt/local/bin/git) and clicked the Choose button. GitX crashed.

I haven't been able to reproduce the crash; I deleted Library/Preferences/nl.frim.GitX.plist are restarted GitX, and everything worked as expected.

I'm attaching the Crash Reporter log, together with the GitX entries in system.log (as there seem to be lots of malloc warnings).

(GitX has also hung - but I can't find a way to reproduce this - and I forgot to take a sample before force-quitting it ... which I'll do if happens again).

Apologies if this isn't sufficiently helpful, but figured I should report it anyway.

Best wishes, Steve

    Yes, I encoutered this too :( It's odd, but after the initial try I couldn't reproduce it either.

    My guess is that something is wrong in the path (de)serializer. Unfortunately I didn't create that code. It's not very high on my priority list (as you may have seen there's a HUGE number of open tickets :( ), but I'll keep this open for when I encouter it again.

    Have you encountered this problem again? Have you had any other crashes? Are you using GitX v0.7 yet?

    Number of students are having the great skills in programming and they can write the excellent fully automatic program which can improve the work efficiency. Here is the great best dissertation service platform for the developers to get acknowledged and can also a solution of the problems.

    My boyfriend is an expert in all this programming stuff. I just a writer from the myessayslab. But I really wonder how everybody learn all this programming languages. Maybe I could try also. I mean, I don't want to write essays to the end of my life.

    Yes, I think using the URL instead of FileWrapper is a good change anyway, so let's try that and see what happens. Marcus: if the same thing still happens after 0.7 is released, please reopen this bug.
