The same happened to me with busybox, and was solved by forcing:


Seems to me (from a cursory look) that "git clone" client always sends
gzipped (inflate) data, but either doesn't set the HTTP encoding header,
or the header gets lost somehow.

The git-http-backend uses that header to decide whether to deflate
the stream or not ( ).

That's the first thing I'd try if the GET request worked but the
following "POST git-update-pack"
does not.
