Git warning: you may want to set your diff.renamelimit variable

December 7th, 2013 · No Comments


If you get this error message:

warning: inexact rename detection was skipped due to too many files.
warning: you may want to set your diff.renamelimit variable to at least 918 and retry the command.

You need to set and unset that rename limit:

git config merge.renameLimit 999999
git config --unset merge.renameLimit

Hope this helps. I was trying to do a brew update on a mac and ran into this issue.
