I just installed Eclipse Juno, and when I first try to start a new Java project, it pops out two messages. Can anyone help me please? Thanks a lot. (BTB I saw same posting but could not get the solution out of it, anybody saw and can help me for the same. If somthing need to be installed how can I do ...)
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.
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
Thanks in advance.

I found information somewhere else concerning the home variable. I specify that I have Juno service release 1 installed on a win7 64bits service pack 1 (german version, so sorry about the fact that I don't know the exact corresponding names in other languages).
- Open the control panel (with display of every element).
- Then click on System.
- On the left part of the window that poped up, you should find something like "extended system settings", click on it.
- On the popup "system property", check the tab "extended" and on the bottom of it, it should be a button "environment variables". Click it.
- To finish, on this last new window, click the new button and write as name HOME and as value %USERPROFILE%
After validation, it should automatically display something else for the variable content (at least by me it's so). In my
I added the home variable on the upper part (user's variables, not in the system variable) and now I get any message about it any longer at the end of eclipse start.
