git-svn with error

If I try to commit or update a subversion repository with Sourcetree I get the following error:

git --no-optional-locks -c color.branch=false -c color.diff=false -c color.status=false -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree svn rebase 

String found where operator expected at /Applications/ line 885, near "fatal "trees ($treeish) $y != $x\n""

(Do you need to predeclare fatal?)

syntax error at /Applications/ line 885, near "fatal "trees ($treeish) $y != $x\n""

BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted at /Applications/ line 1670.

Compilation failed in require at /Applications/ line 42.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /Applications/ line 42.

Completed with errors, see above

searched the web, but couldn't find a clue.

Same problem when I try "git svn", can't find any solution nowhere.

Hi @Armin Inauen,

It looks like you might be using "System Git" in Sourcetree, which is pointing to Xcode's current implementation. Do you encounter the same error if you use "Embedded Git" instead?

Hi Brian,

if I use "Embedded Git 2.18.0" I got the same error message.

Hi Brain,

any news about that "fatal" Error?

Best regards
