sysopen permission denied

I’m trying to fix an intermittent bug in git-svn. The problem is happening in Windows XP only, with both Cygwin git (perl v5.10.1) and msysGit (perl v5.8.8). With any operation that involves a fetch, I’m able to get partway through and then the operation dies with a message similar to Couldn’t open .git/svn/refs/remotes/trunk/.rev_map.cc05479a-e8ea-436f-8d71-e07493b7796c.lock: Device or […]

Git over SSH Server in Windows, cannot find shared libraries

Git Extensions usable with SVN repos?

Can Git Extensions be used without issues (or at least, with very few ones) as a SVN client? I’ve no problem using the command-line git–svn, but in some cases (picking lines/hunks to commit, for example) I’d rather use a GUI client. If there are issues, I’d like to see them along with your workarounds/solutions.

.gitignore blank in Windows Explorer

Why is my .gitignore file blank in Windows (7) Explorer? Note that both the .htaccess file and the .git folder appear as expected. See http://prntscr.com/6rmhk1 (The standard StackOverflow image system isn’t working on my corporate network – probably being blocked).

ssh issue on windows 7 (gitbash vs. windows cmd)

I am able to use ssh (i.e., for ‘git‘ with heroku or github etc.) through GitBash, but I cannot do the same from Windows cmd prompt on the same machine. What can be the problem? If I recall correctly, it used to work from cmd prompt. The error I’m getting is: Permission denied (publickey). fatal: […]
