[SOLVED] Somehow, I managed to not have "write" permissions to the .git directory. So was trying to write the commit and getting bounced.
I've been using Eclipse for a few months, but had been just running git from the CLI. I decided that was inefficient and that I wanted to use eGit, so I started following this tutorial (http://www.slideshare.net/loianeg/using-the-egit-eclipse-plugin-with-git-hub-2578587?from=embed).
I'm trying to add an existing project, so I did Team-->Share Project-->Git and selected the .git corresponding to my project. Eclipse seems to have picked it up, okay, but when I try to commit, I get a popup saying
"Committing changes has encountered a problem' -- an internal error occured.
When I click details, it say "An internal error occurred
Exception caught during execution of commit command"
...I don't even know where to start on this one. I googled the error and didn't get anything useful.
Anyone know how to fix this, or at least how to start debugging?
