Cannot GIT the SuperBuild

Postby jeffbsanders » Fri Feb 21, 2014 11:00 pm

I will eventually doing a CMAKE for Windows, Viusal Studio 2010.

I am trying to GIT the SuperBuild of Flight Gear and related files, without success.

Using the command line "git clone --recursive git://gitorious.org/fg/fgmeta.git " I reciever the following error:

fatal: unable to connect to gitorious.org:
gitorious.org[0: 87.238.52.168]: errno=No error

I am able to ping the GIT address, and access the GIT webpage.

I am totally new to GIT, so I am definitely missing something. Do I need to make a GIT log on, or a GIT account, or something like that.

Do I need to do something before I issue the "git clone --recursive git://gitorious.org/fg/fgmeta.git "?

Thanks

I copied your exact line git clone --recursive git://gitorious.org/fg/fgmeta.git into my terminal, and it's working here properly (currently cloning), so it must be a networking issue somewhere - make sure to check your firewall/router etc.

It was definatly my work network. The line "git clone --recursive git://gitorious.org/fg/fgmeta.git" worked pefecetly from my same computer but on my home network.

by describing the error you experienced and its "solution", or the one I mentioned in the other thread: using a tunnel, i.e. via SSH should work
