Synchronize view shows non-existent white-space and other outgoing changes [message #671442] Tue, 17 May 2011 22:30 Go to next message

When I synchronize with the repo, the Synchronize View is showing changes for all of my files. These changes do not appear when I do a
git status
or
git diff
from the git shell. When I compare the files in the Compare Editor they are either showing no changes, or just white-space changes.

How can the display of these non-existent changes be avoided?

Thanks!

Hi there,

did you manage to get rid of this problem? I have the same problem. (a command line/cygwin 'git status' does not show any differences, a 'synchronize' in eclipse shows all files having leading whitespace differences).

kr,
Wim.

Unfortunately I'm still looking for a solution!

We seem to be having the same issue with EGit 1.2.0.201110240523

I would like to know if there is a solution to this... Sychronize View is not really usable if whitespace differences cannot be ignored.

Not that I'm currently aware of. You may like to follow the bugzilla entry here:

For me, it had something to do with file permissions.
Someone with Max/Linux on my project seems to commit some files with non-default permissions which my Windows git client failed to reproduce.
Solution for me was to tell git to ignore file permissions:
git config core.fileMode false

Other insight: stackoverflow question #1580596 (can't post a link due to forum limitations)
