git svn fetch/rebase error: unable to remap msys-ssl-0.9.8.dll to same address as parent — 0x678F0000

I recently started getting the following git error on git svn fetch or git svn rebase, but other local git commands are working fine:
Following is the detailed error message:
C:\Git\bin\perl.exe: ** unable to remap C:\Git\bin\msys-ssl-0.9.8.dll to same address as parent — 0x678F0000

I have tried multiple solutions including upgrading mysysgit from 1.8.2 to latest but no luck yet.


Solution 1:

The root cause of this issue and any variants of it is two DLLs have been mapped to the same address, causing a conflict. Individual cases can be solved using rebase.

Msysgit 1.9.4-preview20140815 contains a case of this issue with the libsvn_repos-1-0.dll and libneon-25.dll libraries. Using the command git svn gives a similar error message as described in the question.

The bug report contains this workaround:

Rebase to free regions via: (execute as Administrator)

rebase -b 0x64000000 bin/libsvn_repos-1-0.dll
rebase -b 0x64200000 bin/libneon-25.dll

After this git svn works correctly.

Other cases should be solvable in a similar manner, choosing free addresses for the DLLs with which the issue occurs.

Solution 2:

Not the best answer, but a reboot fixed it for me.

Seems related to this issue, so probably address-space related.

Solution 3:

I had a same problem with git 1.9.4-preview20140815 on Windows Server 2008 R2. Restarts didn’t help.

I have downgraded git to version and it solved a problem.

Solution 4:

Just try to uninstall mysysgit and re-install it. For my case this resolved the issue.


Solution 5:

I had the similar issue and i tried restarting my machine but it didn’t work. It worked when I downgraded GIT to

Solution 6:

Same issue, all rebasing of dll-addresses did not work for me. Now ‘Git Svn’ works for me again. Following steps solved the problem (Git 1.9):

1) Deinstall

2) Reboot

3) Install of most recent git version (2.7)
