I just installed Eclipse Juno, and when I first try to start a new Java project, it pops out two messages. (I do not have the same problem with Eclipse Indigo) Can anyone help me please. Thanks a lot.

The first one- EGit could not detect where Git is installed

EGit does not require Git to function, but there may be important settings in the installation directory that EGit needs to know about in order

to be compatible with Git. The most important of these settings is core.autocrlf. Git for Windows by default sets this parameter to true in the

etc director of the Git installation. The directory can be configured in Preferences under Team > Git.

The second-
Check Home Directory C:\Users\"my name"

the environment variable HOME is not set. The following directory will be used for storing the Git user configuration and as default repository location: C:\Users\"my name". If this is not correct please set the HOME environment variable and restart Eclipse.
