Description of problem:
I clone an existing repository from an server via "git clone ssh:// ...". This works. When calling "git pull" it says everything is up to date. I can change existing text files, add the changes, commit them and push them to the server. This works, but when I change a binary file or add a new binary file (png, bmp) then git hangs for several minutes and then terminates saying:
> fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
After this the commit is not applied to the server.
I tried to figure out whats wrong for nearly 20 hours. It is not the the servers fault, its not my firewall. I downgraded git from
git-126.96.36.199-2.fc12.x86_64 to git-188.8.131.52-1.fc12.x86_64
and openssh from
openssh-5.3p1-19.fc12.x64_64 to openssh-5.2p1-31.fc12.x64_64
with no success. Also I built git from the current official sources with no success.
I get the same behavior with Fedora 12 on x86 and x86_64 and Fedora 13 on x86 (x86_64 not tested).
I installed openSuse 11.3 in a virtual machine on my Fedora 12 x86_64 computer and there git works as expected. Also I have a Windows 7 as dual boot on this machine an git works there, too.
The problem occurs with repos on sourceforge and gitorious.
I have really no idea what's wrong.
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 439822 [details]
git hangs after:
--- SIGCHLD (Child exited) @ 0 (0) ---
The problem still occures with
Arch : x86_64
Version : 184.108.40.206
Release : 1.fc12
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
