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

Cheers,
Randall
