I have searched high and low to find a resolution to an error I am
seeing when attempting to push or pull from a repository (remote or on
the same machine). The error reported is as follows:
error: cannot create thread: Unknown error
fatal: fetch-pack: Unable to fork off sideband demultiplexer
This is a Solaris 9 installation (git-1.7.5-sol9-sparc-local.gz
obtained from Sunfreeware.com) including all of the required package
I followed the same install on a Solaris 10 box and have no issues.
Not sure if this is a permissions issue or something not configured
Any help is greatly appreciated.
