Unable to access the ECF Git Repository [message #661526] Fri, 25 March 2011 06:32 Go to next message

I am trying to follow the tutorial at http://wiki.eclipse.org/EIG:Getting_Started_with_OSGi_Remote _Services.
I am using Helios SP1. Everything went fine until I came to the point where I am supposed to clone the Git repository: all the fields in the Clone Git Repository/ Source Git Repository form are exactly as shown in the tutorial, I select Next and I get the Branch Selection form, but this one remains empty and after a few seconds the (Not Responding) is added to the title of the window. It stays like that forever, until I kill the eclipse IDE.
Has anything changed with the new ECF release that makes the tutorial obsolete?
Thanks

Hi,

git works fine here and shows the branch list. I'm on EGit/JGit
0.12.0.201103231515.

Markus,
thank you for your quick reply.
I just installed EGit from the Marketplace, and I got version 0.11.3 for all its plugins. Could that be the problem? How is version 0.12.0 available?
Is there anything special that must be done to connect to the ECF repository other than installing EGit and properly filling the "Clone Git Repository" view? Is the ECS repository still at git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/ecf/org.eclipse.ecf.git?

Thanks
Andrea

Markus,
I just wanted to let you know that I found the cause of the problem: I have cygwin\bin in the path, but I only installed the eclipse version of Git, and this situation breaks org.eclipse.jgit.util.FS_Win32.discoverGitPrefix() quite badly. The funny thing is that the developer suspected this to happen, as indicated by the comment he/she wrote:
// This isn't likely to work, if bash is in $PATH, git should
// also be in $PATH. But its worth trying.

Thank you for your replies.
Andrea
