Subject: [Possible Bug] Commit generates GC repack failure
Date: Mon, 14 Jan 2019 09:50:33 -0500
Message-ID: <002601d4ac18$83d4a210$8b7de630$> (raw)

Hi All,

I'm trying to track down what happened this morning. We had a commit that
caused a background gc to occur. What happened was:

$ git commit -m "history commit ... "
Auto packing the repository in background for optimum performance.
See "git help gc" for manual housekeeping.
warning: The last gc run reported the following. Please correct the root
and remove .git/gc.log.
Automatic cleanup will not be performed until the file is removed.

fatal: open /dev/null failed: Invalid function argument
fatal: failed to run repack

Obviously the /dev/null open was not right, but I don't know where this is
in the git code to investigate further. Any pointers on where to look would
be appreciated. This started happening at  2.20.1 on the NonStop platform.
