Git commit error "Aborting due to empty commit message"

I am having difficulties in committing changes using Git. I am using RubyMine 1.1 on OS X 10.5.7.

From the menu I choose Version Control | Commit Changes. I see a list of the changed files. In the Comment field I enter a comment. When I click Commit I see the following dialog:

"Commit failed with errors"

The commit changes message is: "Error: Aborting commit due to empty message."

What do I need to do to be able to commit? When I do the commit on the command like "git commit -m "My commit message"", it works.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers.

The git does not allows commit without message specified. Have you specified the commit message in commit dialog?

Note that the lines starting with # are treated as comment by Git and are not considered as comments and ignored by Git.

Hi Constantine,

Thanks for the reply. You are correct, that was the problem. When I placed the "#something" anywhere but the first part of the comment, the commit worked perfectly.

Cheers!
