Problems using git on savannah

Michael Welsh Duggan
I am attempting to use git for the first time, and am running into
some problems.  Here is what I am attempting, and the accompanying
error message:


md5i@maru:/usr/local/src$ git clone -n git://git.sv.gnu.org/srv/git/lilypond.git lilypond
fatal: unexpected EOF
fetch-pack from 'git://git.sv.gnu.org/srv/git/lilypond.git' failed.


Am I missing a step, or doing anything else wrong?

Try

git clone -n git://git.sv.gnu.org/srv/git/lilypond.git

which is a shortcut for

git clone -n git://git.sv.gnu.org/srv/git/lilypond.git#master

Then you'll be able if you wish to add other branches from
git.sv.gnu.org to the same local repository (not with clone).

Note that I don't directly use git for most commands but cogito, a
high-level interface to git, so I don't guarantee the commands I give
you will work, but you get the idea.

Cheers,

Unfortunately, no joy.

md5i@maru:/usr/local/src$ git clone -n git://git.sv.gnu.org/srv/git/lilypond.git
fatal: unexpected EOF
fetch-pack from 'git://git.sv.gnu.org/srv/git/lilypond.git' failed.
