Git push fails with "fatal: early EOF" when PUSHing but only on one file

When I try adding textures and text files to my repo it all works, but when I try adding a .blend file I get this error. I've tried a bunch of things I found here and on google, none of them worked (all were for clone/pull commands)

I'm using Tortoise git 1.7.8 and Git 1.7.10 msysgit - I changed to them after the latest builds failed.

Others have no problem pushing things to the repo, but I did not send them the .blend file.

Here is the output:

EDIT: It now seems this is a server problem, since github works. I'll update if I find a solution.


(This answer is a workaround, not a solution.)

I've just had the same problem (can't push my changes anymore using TortoiseGit/msysgit). Since the problem occurs during unpacking, it can be avoided by disabling compression:

  1. Context Menu on the folder/TortoiseGit/Settings
  2. "Edit local .git/config"
  3. Add compression = 0 to the [core] section.

Obviously, disabling compression might affect performance, so use this workaround at your own discretion.
