I have git and git-svn installed via Fink. I try to do the following:

$ git svn init http://myserver/myrepo
Initialized empty Git repository in checkout/.git/
$ git svn fetch
error: git-svn died of signal 10

Why is git-svn failing? How can I fix this? I have the repo already checked out via vanilla SVN, so there shouldn't be any access or permissions issues.

Might not be the only issue but to fetch the svn data you need to be in a git controlled directory. So cd checkout before the fetch.

Ahh, Mark, that's most likely it. I can't believe I didn't think of that! – pr1001 Sep 9 '10 at 16:48
