Autocrlf not working on 1.9.4 (Mac OSX Maverics)

having problems commiting files that have been edited by a Windows user. So I opened up the config file in the SourceTree app, and added the line for autocrlf = input, yet it doesn't stop the fatal error message. I also tried the command line $ git config --global core.autocrlf input

which saves to my local user config, but neither keeps the message from appearing. I also tried searching for any other .gitconfig files on my machine, and the only one that I can find is the local one.. so where does the SoureTree .gitconfig file reside? and why does it not solve the fatal message?

1 answer

btw, setting autocrlf = false in the SoureTree config file works; or at least allows me to commit the files without fatal error message, but then our Windows users will have same problem I am guessing..
