Using EGit - basics [message #8609] Wed, 10 June 2009 23:59 Go to next message

Hi, sorry I'm a total noob.

I'm just starting to play with eclipse (Version: 3.4.2) and GIT (1.6.3)
and EGIT (0.4.0 I think). I don't seem to be able to "add" or "commit"
within eclipse (after installing the EGIT plugin).

When I try to "add" an "(untracked)" file via Team->Track(add) I get an
empty popup with an "OK" button. It looks like the title says "Track
fa..." which I'm guessing is "track failed"

If add the file using GIT from the command line, EGIT recognizes the
change and removes the "(untracked)". If I go ahead and now try to
commit, I get the error: Error occurred while committing Reason: Writing
trees.

Am I doing something wrong, or are these functionalities missing at this
point?

Thanks for the help
Jay

This should work. Look in the error log for detail and we also need to
know the path of the file you want to track, and the location of the .git
directory.

I also see this same behavior.

When I try to do Team -> Add to Version Control on any file, I get a popup
error window that is empty. The title of the error window is "Track fail".

No corresponding error message appears in the Eclipse error log (at
metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.ui.workbench/log).

I see this same behavior on both Eclipse 3.4 and Eclipse 3.5.

Sorry, I also should have mentioned the following :

1. This is eGit on Windows Vista with either Eclipse 3.4 and Eclipse 3.5

2. The directory structure is as follows

EclipseWorkRoot
/git-demo
.git
README.txt
/demo
README.txt


I can't add either of the README.txt or the /demo folder to source control.

The internals of my .git directory look healthy, showing all the usual
sub-directories.

I see logging goes to stdout... (very old code). Could you try starting
eclipse with a cmd windows, i.e. eclipsec.exe and see what its says?

What paths exists below M:}\WorkRoot\git-demo? Maybe the repo creation
failed. Obviously we need better error handling here.

Can you create that path manually? Delete it afterwards. I guess M: here is
a network drive of some sort.

The .git directory is already there and seems to be in working order.

However - your comment about M: being a network drive gave me an idea.

M: is actually a Samba share to my Linux box. I've been running in this config (Eclipse on Windows, writing to Linux directories via Samba) for years without any trouble - using both the CVS and SVN Eclipse functionality.

But - there seems to be something that the EGit plugin doesn't like about the Samba share! My problems went away when I tested on a straight up Windows directory on my C: drive.

Anyway, thanks for the help, and I'll try and puzzle out what ridiculous Samba config needs tweaking on my own.

I have exactly the same problem.. egit works allright locally on C: but if my project is at a networked drive either using a mapped path like S: or using \\server\share I get an empty popup error message.

Using Zend studio 7.0.2 (eclipse platform 3.5.0 I believe) and

Egit 0.6.0.200911171911

JGit 0.5.0.200912061441
Eclipse 3.5 Build 20090920-1017

This worked splendidly under 3.4, and it fails on my local drives, E: and C:

It fails to recognize that the project has been added to a repository.

I have the same problems using Eclipse with EGit on Windows XP. Very annoying, but ok. If additional information is required, just ask.

Same situation, got a samba share. Gives some additional clues when trying to commit:

Error during commit
Reason:
Committing changes
Unable to create new object Z:\my\path\project\.git\object\44\8496808a58e224....

Other GIT tools have no problem pushing, pulling, cloning?

Seems related;
http://code.google.com/p/nbgit/issues/detail?id=42
http://code.google.com/u/senotrusov/updates


Other errors were about "Auth failed" on the server (/var/log/secure);
Received disconnect from ... com.jcraft.jsch.JschException: Auth fail;
This patch for Ant may be closely related:
http://marc.info/?l=ant-dev&m=111959408515300&w=2
But I can't relate it to the specific Samba issue, so maybe misleading.


Context; I publish the userhomes as Samba-shares including a 'www' working directory which is defined as Userdir in Apache HttpD. Users can checkout their working copies into 'www', test it on the remote server (so same config). When checked they'll commit and it'll show up on the main webserver path. Great when combined with XDebug if working in PHP Smile
This bug seems to break the plan Sad

Hi,

I too have the same problem.

EGit: 0.6.0.201001232236

The problem appears when i chose "Add to Version Control"

An error box "Track failed", without further text appears.

Eclipsec.exe output:
org.eclipse.jgit.errors.ObjectWritingException: Unable to create new object: Z:\www\test\.git\objects\f6\d7651e2766bcf93301b09bd3fb5de06a8f8ec9

I've tried the changes to the samba config, but they don't seem to work.

This should work. Look in the error log for detail and we also need to
know the path of the file you want to track, and the location of the .git
directory.
