Trying to commit to a Git repo with Sourcetree fails as follows:
git -c core.quotepath=false commit -q -m "Notes fri" -a error: unable to create temporary sha1 filename .git/objects/d8: File exists error: Error building trees Completed with errors, see above
It is possible to commit without problems with command line Git.
With some googling I found the following commands to try but they didn't help:
git fsck git prune git repack git fsck
I also tried the following, no help either
Unfortunately this nabble discussion shows that 'Error building trees' doesn't necessarily mean anything within the context of the problem. It seems "error: unable to create temporary sha1 filename" and "error: Error building trees" don't go hand in hand. There's various discussions of this problem on StackOverflow so it's worth checking out this link.
With that link in mind it's worth checking out the permissions and chown the entire directory recursively, only if you get a permission denied error after trying repack or gc. Generally though, it seems more of a permissions problem due to multiple users committing to the same repository.
If the former doesn't work then it'd be worth knowing more about your setup, i.e. do multiple users have access to this repository?
