Well, I have more info for the group:
we can execute on server:
# GIT_TRACE=1 git repack
and will receive detailed information about the way of the command:
trace: exec: 'git-repack'
trace: run_command: 'git-repack'
trace: built-in: git 'rev-parse' '--parseopt' '--'
trace: built-in: git 'rev-parse' '--git-dir'
trace: built-in: git 'config' '--bool' 'repack.usedeltabaseoffset'
trace: built-in: git 'pack-objects' '--keep-true-parents'
'--honor-pack-keep' '--non-empty' '--all' '--reflog' '--unpacked'
Counting objects: 3, done.
ld.so.1: git: fatal: relocation error: file
/usr/local/libexec/git-core/git: symbol deflateBound: referenced symbol not
Unfortunately, this information is not enough for me to know what's wrong
with my git installation.
Have re installed couple times to see if my installation process gives me
any warning, but none taken.
