Thanks for the report.
(Typically nobody (tm) here on the list opens a web-browser to look at external
material, so here is a shortened version of the pastebin:)
error: unable to create file crypto_stream/lexv2/e/v2/schwabe/sparc-2/e/aux.c: No such file or directory
error: unable to create file crypto_stream/lexv2/e/v2/schwabe/sparc-2/e/aux.s: No such file or directory
Segmentation fault: 99% (26526/26793)
There are actually 2 problems:
- The filenames named aux.c
It could be that git -c core.longpaths=true clone xxx
works, but I don't have a Windows box to test at the moment-
- The crash
Which Git version do you use?
It may be a good idea to report it here
