Problems using Git via Thunderbolt SSD (git can't recognize repository after reconnect)
location: linuxexchange.com - date: May 21, 2013
I recently got an external thunderbolt-sata adapter and I'm running into some issues using git. Since I'm a developer this is a HUGE HUGE HUGE problem for me! And since the thunderbolt technology is so new, these problems aren't well documented.
When i first git clone onto my thunderbolt, everything works fine. But if i restart my computer, or swap out hard disks, git can no longer recognize the repo.
fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
Not sure if this is directly related to how a drive is mounted with Thunderbolt or if this is just a problem people run into with git repo's on external drives in general. But this issue has already cost me hours of productivity. Imagine if you had to git clone every single time you wanted to work on a problem. Imagine if you didn't know if you were losing important changes and couldn't even git status!
Also, i have set the GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM flag in /etc/zshenv

How can I resolve these apt-get errors or install GIT using a different method.

Can't clone repo using git clone git://… ok with git clone http://
location: linuxexchange.com - date: August 1, 2014
Git newbie here. I'm setting up git on a new Ubuntu VM and trying to clone some repos. The clone works for the following command:
git clone http://github.com/organisation_name/repo_name
(after prompt for username/password), but fails for
git clone git://github.com/organisation_name/repo_name
git clone git://github.com/organisation_name/repo_name.git
with the same error message:
Cloning into 'repo_name'...
fatal: remote error:
Repository not found
Of course the obvious answer is "use the http method", but I'm trying to understand why one works and the other doesn't. Any suggestions? (also is there any difference when using the .git extension on the repo name btw?)
How to install WINE using git?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 17, 2009
Well, I wanted to install Adobe CS4 on my Ubuntu Karmic machine but I had to install some sort of patch on WINE in order for me to install. From there I deleted my current WINE installation per the winehq website.. So I followed the directions to download and install 'git' but they didn't tell me how to install WINE using 'git.' I downloaded a graphical front-end for 'git,' and this has confused me beyond reason. It lists literally ALL of the possible WINE installs but when I try to cd into the 'wine-git' folder to ./configure WINE, it brings up that WINE can't do something with X and preceding that a lot of "checking [something] ... no" repeatedly.
I am really confused?!
I just want to be able to download and install WINE version 1.1.14, install Microsoft Office, upgrade to version 1.1.17 without losing Microsoft Office, then patch 1.1.17 so I can install Adobe CS4! I know Office installs and works perfectly...winehq appdb says Adobe will run too if I apply this patch...
Problems with git and SSL
- date: October 20, 2011
A bit of background:
I have spent a long time trying to understand this problem, with no luck, so hopefully someone here can enlighten me.
I am running a simple webserver which will host git repositories. We want to use smart http to allow git over https with autentication. Many of the people who will use these repositories are not very technically savvy, so we need a simple way for them to access the repos. Walking them through anything that requires any understand of using the command line aside from copy-pasting commands would be a huge headache, so we are hoping to avoid using ssh keys.
I have a signed ssl certificate on the webserver which works in chrome and firefox, as well as using curl or wget with no errors or warnings, but when I go to check out a git repo
, there is an error:
error: server certificate verification failed. CAfile: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt CRLfile: none

Problems with git/gitosis and key authentication
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 24, 2009
This is a repost from the Beginner forums, I feel this is a better forum for this question.
Hey everyone, looking for a little help as I've become pretty frustrated installing a remote git repository on my ubuntu server 9.10.
I'm following the directions posted here: http://scie.nti.st/2007/11/14/hostin...and-secure-way
The steps I've taken to get where I'm finding trouble are as follows:
1) I log in to my admin account (jdaily) on my "server" system where the remote git repositories will be held.
2) I create a folder called "src" in my home directory
3) I used git clone git://eagain.net/gitosis.git to download gitosis then use the python tools to install it
4) Next I create a user called 'git' by entering:
sudo adduser --system --shell /bin/sh --gecos 'git version control' --group --disabled-password --home /home/git git
5) Then I use "ssh-keygen -t rsa" to create a private and public key in /home/jdaily/.ssh/id_rsa(.pub)
Can I launch a complete Gnome desktop session using SSH via PuTTY?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 8, 2006
Hello, I am trying to establish a remote Gnome desktop session into a Red Hat linux server running the Enterprise 4.3 OS. From my Windows laptop, I first create a SSH X11 forwarding session using PuTTY (v0.56) into the linux server. I chose PuTTy because of the need for a secure encryption. I then launch my Hummingbird Exceed V7.1 process in the background. My question is, how can I launch the Gnome desktop from the command line? I've tried the following command below, but as you can see, I get a lot of warning/error messages. The Gnome desktop does indeed display, but I question some of its functionality. Am I using the right command? Is there a better way to establish a remote but secure Gnome desktop session?

[SOLVED] Compiling a custom kernel using git fails
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 17, 2008
I'm trying to build a custom kernel for 8.04 and set it up like the xen, rt kernels but it fails
Here are the steps I took:
git clone git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-hardy.git hardy
git checkout Ubuntu-2.6.24-21.42 -b mine
cp debian/binary-custom.d/xen debian/binary-custom.d/mine -r
cp /boot/<mycurrentconfig> .config
made some changes in the kernel and saved it.
mv .config debian/binary-custom.d/mine/config.i386
vi debian/binary-custom.d/mine/rules Removed all lines except line 1
vi debian/binary-custom.d/mine/vars Changed the target and description.
CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=2 AUTOBUILD=1 NOEXTRAS=1 fakeroot debian/rules custom-binary-mine
It then fails with the following error:

Trouble using git push on Ubuntu Server.
- date: October 17, 2013
I'm having a lot of trouble with internet connectivity on a Dev server I'm working with. Currently we are attempting to push a commit to github but are having no luck. Here's what I've gathered so far:
*Can ping any outside address
*wget will not work with any address
*ssh -T [email protected]
results in a timeout error
*Other computers on the same network have no trouble connecting to github
*Iptables seem to be set correctly:
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)target prot opt source destination
Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)target prot opt source destination
Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)target prot opt source destination
My assumption is that some part of the server's configuration is not set but I'm sure not where to look.
Thanks for your time!
