I am using IntelliJ 2016.1 for Linux and the annotate function (available via right-click on the bar at the left of a line of code) always fails with the message
Error:Failed to annotate: com.intellij.openapi.vcs.VcsException: fatal: internal error in diff-resolve-rename-copy
during executing git -c core.quotepath=false show -M --name-status --pretty=format:%x01%H%x02%ct%x02%P%x03 --encoding=UTF-8 7c39a0c85fb6dd7b1f1d2853a441ae20dae8e6ee --follow -- <filename>.java
The same behavior appeared in all previous versions of IntelliJ I have used (from 12 onwards, at least).
Other Git options (e.g., "Show History") work as expected.
Is there any solution to this?
