I have gitlist setup on my server configured with gitolite.
I get the message:
"Oops! fatal: Not a valid object name master"
when I try to access either the default 'gitolite-admin' or 'testing' repos.

has anyone ever seen this? really really want to get gitlist running !! :-)

more info: I do not have a "git" user on my system just "gitolite" do you think this may be an issue? or perhaps whatever user gitlist uses need to be configured in the gitolite config?

I hope this helps someone:

do a chmod -R 777 on /path/to/gitolite/repositories

all works fine!! yay!

Seeing the same issue after a migration from gitosis -> gitolite.

Repositories from gitosis are fine, however if you push an update to a repo it becomes subsequently unavailable.

My hunch is that this is a permission thing, but I can't see anything obvious, and git clone functions perfectly.
