Hello,

What is what I do with EGit :

1. I clone with EGit a git remote depositery
2. As it is a C++ project, I run CMake to do a makefile project
3. I import the project in the C++ perspective as a makefile project
4. In the Project explorer, I do Team/Share project/Git
5. I select the .git in my clone's directory; Working directory is automatically set, I leave "Path within repository" blank, and I check the only choice in the list at the bottom of the window

All the files wich come from the depository are then tagged with the question mark decorator.

Are not they supposed to be tracked ?

The files which were generated by CMake after cloning have no decorator.

When I do "git status" on the command lines", all the "question marked" files are tagged as deleted, but not staged for commit.

It seems I don't understand some basis.

Thanks for help.

It seems that when sharing the project, EGit doesn't like when a project name is different of the directory name.
I didn't change the default project name when importing the C++ project, and it is now OK.

Try this instead:

1. In the Git Repository Exploring perspective, clone the repo, and in the third 'page' of Clone Git Repository dialog, where you enter the directory for the clone, check the box that says "Import all existing projects after clone finishes". Use the "Next" button to advance pages.

That's it -- no need to do anything else for Git configuration.

The only checkboxs I can view during the cloning process are :

- "Store in Secure Store" (first screen)
- branches (second screen)
- configure push to Gerrit Code Review (fourth screen)

The boxes you mention are on the first page of the dialog. The checkbox of interest is on the third page (I was off by one in my earlier description). The second page lets you choose which branches to clone, the third page lets you select the location for the clone, import projects, and manage working sets. Use the "Next" button to advance pages.

The "Import all existing projects after clone finishes" option was recently added into EGit 1.2-SNAPSHOT and currently it is only available in nightly builds. Of course it will be included in upcoming 1.2 release. So Oodini you need to check with version of EGit you are currently using to be able to use this option Wink

I don't think this new feature will be useful for me, because I have to run CMake before importing my project in CDT.
