git svn fetch checksum mismatch

0 votes
282 views

I am trying to convert my SVN repo to GIT using GIT-SVN and after a few commits being process am running in to following error

: git svn fetch...r1878 = 79e09734fdb4916276da8273f25ecfbff37954a6 (refs/remotes/svn/nt/notecards)Checksum mismatch: dashboard-merged/_images/bg-header-public.jpg 2969d1b5f818325a7516ea392be9564e1da2a3e7expected: 42865291d24451e2dc7be44a60f3f692 got: 679bc6fd19e3879fed0c17e1b6735161

Here is what I did to verify the issue of the file

$ svn export -r1878 bg-header-public.jpg A bg-header-public.jpgExport complete.
$ openssl md5 bg-header-public.jpg MD5(bg-header-public.jpg)= 42865291d24451e2dc7be44a60f3f692
$ svn export -r1879 bg-header-public.jpg A bg-header-public.jpgExport complete.
$ openssl md5 bg-header-public.jpg MD5(bg-header-public.jpg)= 679bc6fd19e3879fed0c17e1b6735161

It is evident that the file has changed from r1878 to r1879, but while migrating the changes for 1878 why the changes of 1879 are showing up ? Or am i missing something here ?

This error message is coming directly from Subversion, so it's more likely that you'll get a response from that side of the process than the git side.

A quick Google brought up

I am new in git and I am trying to understand it.

I have this case:

a. I develop a html file in several days with daily commit.
b. Some weeks after I noticed that I lost part of the code.
c. I located a code 3 commits ago.

then how I can fetch from the remote repository the html file as was 3 commit before (the whole file)?

I would like to know why GIT calculates checksum of a file.Typically, checksum is used for the purpose of integrity. An example would really help.
