I am trying to clone a repository using git on cygwin.
Machine is a Windows XP machine, running a newly updated version of cygwin
I have cloned this repository without any trouble previously, but on a new machine I get this issue:
buildmeister@winbuild /cygdrive/d $ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:gollumullog/test.git Cloning into 'test'... remote: Counting objects: 3, done. Receiving objects: 100remote: Total 3 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0) Receiving objects: 100% (3/3), done. error: inflate: data stream error (invalid code lengths set) error: failed to read object 14007e4054f6c7c33e03975c480ba9986510d4ff at offset 12 from /cygdrive/d/test/.git/objects/pa ck/pack-ad4395202f65ea50c9cef2e4fc4a5d9cca8321bc.pack fatal: packed object 14007e4054f6c7c33e03975c480ba9986510d4ff (stored in /cygdrive/d/test/.git/objects/pack/pack-ad43952 02f65ea50c9cef2e4fc4a5d9cca8321bc.pack) is corrupt
The above repository is just a stub I created on github with only a readme file in it.
Any help diagnosing the issue would be greatly appreciated.
Notes: - I have seen some weird permission issues on this machine, and wonder if this is related: ie I create a folder using explorer in windows, and the permissions set appear to be d---------+ when I examine in cygwin, but I can cd to it, and create files in it, etc.
