git config --global --add safe.directory
« on: February 06, 2024, 03:52:37 PM »
Hi,

I keep getting the following message, what does it mean and how do I correct/remove it?

fatal: detected dubious ownership in repository at '//wsl.localhost/Ubuntu/home/jdechirico/git/Build_840/ZFPE'

My guess is that you're picking up a different .gitconfig in SlickEdit than outside of it. I would check for a difference in the environment of console shell and when you run "set" from SlickEdit.

Are you using a Windows version of SlickEdit?

Yes, I am using the windows version of SlickEdit

.gitconfig
[user]
   name = jdechirico
   email = jdechirico@iopentext.com
[filter "lfs"]
   clean = git-lfs clean -- %f
   smudge = git-lfs smudge -- %f
   process = git-lfs filter-process
   required = true
[safe]
   directory = %(prefix)///wsl.localhost/Ubuntu/home/jdechirico/git
