Hi all,

Quite new to this git thing but am learning the concepts slowly.

I work alone so I am only using git to a) branch to add new features and b) clone to my home machine if I want to work from home.

I have previously cloned a couple of repos from github, and they worked fine. Now I am trying to do it on a larger project, which has multiple branches, and I keep getting the same problem - the wizard downloads everything (so it thinks), the progress bar is full but the window never closes. When I look at the files in the folder in my workspace they are not all there. For some reason git is not downloading everything. I made sure I did a merge to master from the branch I was working on.

Does anyone have any experience with this? I have tried download all branches, and just one. I updated my egit but the same thing still happens. Maybe my branches are messed up or there's something i'm just not getting?

Thanks for reading,

Drew

My guess is that there is something bad happening at checkout time. Look for error messages
in the <workspace>/.metadata/.log or Error View in Eclipse. Also dump the stacks of the
executing eclipse which can be done with the program jstack in your JDK directory.
