recently I got a:
remote: fatal: *object 534a44ef7703fdfe13e609b3e87e98bd52af60f8 is corrupted
error: git upload-pack: git-pack-objects died with error.
fatal: git upload-pack: aborting due to possible repository corruption on
the remote side.
remote: aborting due to possible repository corruption on the remote side.
fatal: *early EOF*
fatal: index-pack failed
which later I found that the *read/write permissions* of the git database
was wrong. How it went wrong?
I do have a *pre-receive* hook that failed with an error and caused a
*push*operation to abort. Note that the script does not perform any file
operations or changes whatsever - it simply checks the current user and
either exits true/false. Nevertheless there was a scripting error which it
seems caused git to mangle the read/write permissions of some files. So I
fixed it with:
chmod -R ug+rwX <repo>
... and it worked again.
Yes - I do suspect git of having a bug ...
Hope this helps someone ...
