    For all the Git/Mercurial source control I use the SourceTree client. I also use it to work with SVN repositories, by downloading them as local Git repositories, using the Git-SVN facility. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work any more in the SourceTree GUI on Mavericks. I have to open the Terminal and type git svn fetch && git svn rebase to do a SVN update, for example. If I attempt it from the SourceTree toolbar, I get an overly long error message having something to do with Perl5 and others. Note that the Git client used by Terminal is different from the one bundled with It happens both on my home laptop and work desktop. Does anyone else have this problem, and know the solution?

    Can you post the error message?

    Straight git works OK?

    What happens when you set SourceTree to use the same git version as you use on the commandline?
