git gc - out of memory

Simon Strandgaard
My bare repository is on an OpenBSD machine.
I was unaware of the importance of git gc until today
after investigating a problem with "git pull".
So there hasn't been run git gc on the repository ever.

The biggest file in the repository is a 45 mb file.
The repository size is near 2 gb.

What can I do?

$ git gc
Counting objects: 5934, done.
warning: suboptimal pack - out of memory
fatal: Out of memory, malloc failed8)
error: failed to run repack
$ git --version
git version 1.6.5.2
$ uname -a
OpenBSD amiga.opcoders.com 4.3 GENERIC#698 i386
$ ulimit -a
time(cpu-seconds)    unlimited

nofiles(descriptors) 128

$ du -ks myrepository.git

$



Below is the "git pull" problem I'm having. I think its caused
by the former problem. When pulling it dies because of malloc failure.

prompt> git pull

remote: fatal: Out of memory, malloc failed
error: git upload-pack: git-pack-objects died with error.
fatal: git upload-pack: aborting due to possible repository corruption

run « git repack -adf --window=memory » on the repo where memory is
escaled apropiately for your machine ?

See « git help repack »

Thank you Alejandro, it now works!

I think the default is 10, so I tried with window=5 and
it completed a full repack.

$ git repack -adf --window=5
Counting objects: 5934, done.
Compressing objects: 100% (5711/5711), done.
Writing objects: 100% (5934/5934), done.
Total 5934 (delta 3733), reused 0 (delta 0)
Removing duplicate objects: 100% (256/256), done.
$ git gc
Counting objects: 5934, done.
Compressing objects: 100% (1978/1978), done.
Writing objects: 100% (5934/5934), done.
Total 5934 (delta 3733), reused 5934 (delta 3733)
$


Now that it works..
Should I report the original issue as a bug somewhere?
e.g. malloc failed sounds like a bug.

 I was trying to make you use --window-memory=[memory] not --window= ;P

 This is the right place. Just wait for someone more knowledgeable than
me ...
