The error message presented does not state Git tried to create a file
Since the repo appears to be located in a totally veird place (not
under /var/local/something or ~/devel/whatever), I'd check permissions
Julien, the user jln must have full write access to the repository
# chown -R jln /opt/git/jlnLib.git
# chmod -R u+rw /opt/git/jlnLib.git
And yes, as Michael said, check that /tmp has permissions set to 1777.
