git clone never completes

I am trying to use git clone on Mac OS Snow Leopard. All I do is “git clone https://*/project.git” from documents/projects directory. For some reason operation never completes and stops at random points somewhere at the “Receiving Files:” stage(different % of copied files each time). Am I doing something wrong?

  • git cherry-pick and merge by ignoring EOL changes
  • how to automate the “commit-and-push” process? (git)
  • How do I show the changes which have been staged?
  • Succinct way to create a tracking branch with Git
  • Where can I find an updatesite zip for eGit on Eclipse 3.6 behind a firewall?
  • how to shrink the .git folder
  • How can I stop an Xcode Archive build if my git working copy is dirty?
  • Does anyone here fork themself?
  • Hg-Git: How to push to both Github and Bitbucket?
  • How do you manage to keep credentials out of publically browsable source code?
  • How do I update my forked repo using SourceTree?
  • git: How to ignore all present untracked files?
  • One Solution collect form web for “git clone never completes”

    I have usually seen this symptom on repos with a “resource locked” issue, because of some processes keeping an handle on one of the git files.

    Last time was for a git repo directly part of a Dropbox shared directory. (Which is why I always recommend to share in a Dropbox directory only the bundle, not the all git repo structure itself)

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
