I'm working on a project using git, and ran into some problems: How to diagnose and fix git fatal unable to read tree The comments suggested that my issue might be related to my file system, so I have tried a few things but wanted to check them here.

I booted Ubuntu 12.10 from a live cd and ran

sudo fdisk -l

which gave this output

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders, total 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x3c7b1a0a

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

/dev/sda6       521973760   958926847   218476544   83  Linux

Partition table entries are not in disk order

Disk /dev/sdd: 1998 MB, 1998585856 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 7624 cylinders, total 3903488 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0004d834

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdd1              32     3903487     1951728    b  W95 FAT32

I then ran

sudo fsck /dev/sda6

which gave

fsck from util-linux 2.20.1
e2fsck 1.42 (29-Nov-2011)
/dev/sda6: clean, 832860/13656064 files, 5764993/54619136 blocks

Does this mean that my file system is ok? Are there any other commands that I should check?

I have tentatively added the git tag to this question, as that's really where the problem seems to lie- I'm not entirely sure what the status of my file system is, but would love to get to the bottom of it.

Everything appears to be fine with your file system. You haven't got any of the fsck error messages, it completed the scan successfully. This issue should be related to git alone. Check my comment at StackOverflow.
