Talk:EGit/Git For Eclipse Users
The tutorial (which is great, by the way) works for me only when setting receive.denyCurrentBranch to ignore. Problem is: Without this setting I cannot push into the checked out branch.
Platform: msysgit 220.127.116.11-preview20100309, Windows7.
To avoid getting an error like this:
remote: error: refusing to update checked out branch: refs/heads/master remote: error: By default, updating the current branch in a non-bare repository remote: error: is denied, because it will make the index and work tree inconsistent remote: error: with what you pushed, and will require 'git reset --hard' to match remote: error: the work tree to HEAD. remote: error: remote: error: You can set 'receive.denyCurrentBranch' configuration variable to remote: error: 'ignore' or 'warn' in the remote repository to allow pushing into remote: error: its current branch; however, this is not recommended unless you remote: error: arranged to update its work tree to match what you pushed in some remote: error: other way. remote: error: remote: error: To squelch this message and still keep the default behaviour, set remote: error: 'receive.denyCurrentBranch' configuration variable to 'refuse'.
I have added a couple of lines to the tutorial. Just after we create the second "other" repository we need to tell git that it is a bare repository so we can push to it without having to set the "receive.denyCurrentBranch" config variable. Also added a line that will switch back from bare repository so we can perform the checkout.
It's not quite explicit enough, I think, that moving from one directory to another also makes the git system automatically change perspective so that the repository you moved to is now the default one. I modified this line to make it clearer:
$ cd /tmp/other # Switch to 'other' repository. All git commands now apply to new repository.
