Hi all,

I'm new to Eclipse and was trying out a tutorial on the Parallel Tools Platform given at a recent supercomputing conference. I followed the tutorial to check out a project via CVS and then tried to synchronize it on a remote server.

When I try the synchronization step I get a "remote git init failed: sh: git: command not found" (see attachment). I know that git is not installed by default on our remote cluster, so I was wondering if there was a way around this (I doubt the administrators will change their default software stack to enable git). Can I change the synchronization method to something else e.g. svn?

Thanks in advance,

Tim.

As the name suggests, the Egit plugin is specifically for Git version control in Eclipse. It's not useful (*) if your team uses some other version control system. Given that your team is using CVS version control, you should be using the CVS Eclipse plugin that's comes as part of your Eclipse installation, not EGit.


(*) As a special case you can use Git as an SVN client. But EGit/JGit doesn't support these operations directly and I wouldn't recommend using it that way unless you're already very familiar with standard Git.

Thanks for the info. Any quick instructions on how to switch over to the CVS plugin?

Maybe you did "Team > Share Project..." and selected "Git" there ?
Then click "Team > Disconnect" and then "Team > Share Project..." and then select "CVS"

Hello everyone,

I am following up on the issue that Tim mentioned with our cluster. I tried the suggested approach, but it did not work. Also, it seems the the correct Team > Share Project setting was selected from the beginning. Does anyone else have anymore suggestions on how to do a remote synchronization succesfully since we do not have the git command? If anyone needs anymore information, fee free to ask. Also, I would like to add that the files we are trying to synchronize are not our own, they are from a tutorial located in the following site: http://wiki.eclipse.org/PTP/tutorials/XSEDE12. Also, as mentioned earlier, we are new to using eclipse so I apolgoize if what I mentioned is irrelevant.

Thank you,
Antelmo Aguilar
