repo not loading / displaying

Reported by iconic | October 31st, 2008 @ 01:29 AM

I have a reasonably large repo that refuses to display in gitx ... it loads correctly in gitk

The branches are listed, but i can't see any of the commits

    are there any errors in Console? What version of git are you running?

    well it's not the repo ... I just installed it on another machine with the same repo and it loaded the repo fine.

    I'm using git 1.5.4 on both machines and I'll check the console tomorrow when I get back to that machine and report back if there are errors.

    The machine that failed is a G5 ... any chance it could be a build / hardware issue?

    It should work fine on a G5. It might be that GitX finds an older git with a higher priority. In that case, you could try using the latest nightly (http://gitx.frim.nl/Downloads), which has somewhat better error reporting. However, it should be easy to tell what's wrong from the Console output.

    FYI console reported: 3/11/08 12:16:55 PM [0x0-0x6b06b].nl.frim.GitX[1566] GitX(1566,0xf0103000) malloc: free_garbage: garbage ptr = 0x107e4b0, has non-zero refcount = 1 3/11/08 12:17:11 PM [0x0-0x6b06b].nl.frim.GitX[1566] fatal: Not a git repository

    running git gc and git fsck didn't help the situation ... any suggestions?

    the latest nightly revealed the issue ... the G5 has 1.3.8 on it and gitx is looking for 1.5.4 ... I'll upgrade GIT when I have some time.
