If you updated compiz today from git (like any awesome person would), you probably would have noticed the following error:

User@XPS-SUSE:~/Source/Compiz-Fusion/personal/compiz> git pull origin master
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

It’s actually

git clone git:// *
git checkout -b  origin/compiz-0.8 --track

Stay tuned for updates.

  1. “(like any awesome person would)”

    Then why do they need to checkout 0.8 😉 any awesome person would be using ‘compiz++’ 😛

  2. one question: if i use old master compiz (now inactive) and so i have compiz folder cloned, i can follow 2 alternatives:
    1. rm compiz and reclone it following your cmd
    2. can i switch branch to compiz-0.8 and git pull? i have this problem:

    git checkout -b compiz-0.8
    M po/
    Switched to a new branch “compiz-0.8”

    git pull
    You asked me to pull without telling me which branch you
    want to merge with, and ‘branch.compiz-0.8.merge’ in
    your configuration file does not tell me either. Please
    name which branch you want to merge on the command line and
    try again (e.g. ‘git pull ‘).

  3. some-guy: your cmd is right if you clone, but i have already compiz, running your cmd:
    fatal: git checkout: branch compiz-0.8 already exists
