git svn broken on Mac OS X under SourceTree but not from the terminal: how to fix it.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/05

Not on the terminal, but only in SourceTree I got this error (full text below):

Can't locate SVN/Core.pm in @INC

Well, the Xcode binaries were here:

 $ xcode-select -p
/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer

On Mavericks, perl is this version:

$ perl --version | grep -w for
This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 2 (v5.16.2) built for darwin-thread-multi-2level
(with 3 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

and git is this:

$ git --version
git version 1.9.5 (Apple Git-50.3)

Steps for fixing are at these blog entries:

All these solutions point you to change the system Perl installation, but since on my system it failed only on SourceTree, but from the terminal, I wanted to fix SourceTree.

So I started looking at the full error text:

Can't locate SVN/Core.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/git/lib/perl5/site_perl /Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/git_local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16.2/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/git_local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16.2 /Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/git_local/lib/perl5/site_perl /Library/Perl/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.16 /Network/Library/Perl/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Network/Library/Perl/5.16 /Library/Perl/Updates/5.16.2 /System/Library/Perl/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/5.16 /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.16 .) at /Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/git_local/lib/perl5/site_perl/Git/SVN/Utils.pm line 6.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/git_local/libexec/git-core/git-svn line 25.

Then decided this likely was the fix:

ln -s  /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Library/Perl/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level/SVN /Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/git_local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16.2/darwin-thread-multi-2level/SVN

The second line fixes the error left after the first line:

    So you’re effectively monkey patching the embedded git version inside SourceTree? You can just turn off “use internal git” on SourceTree can’t you?

      I’ve had issues with using the non-embedded hg and git versions understanding flow in the past so I’ve learned to let SourceTree very much likes the embedded hg/git versions.

        I haven’t even used git flow but the embedded system didn’t pick up the correct ssh keys and certificate authorities (CA) causing me to have lots of pain with the embedded one.
