Re: [cbi-dev] CBI Eclipse Platform moved

I'm using the diff system with "--recurse-submodules" support, but here is a problem to get submodules:
Submodule path 'eclipse.jdt': checked out '3ce7883dc571704f45154074101e4573e75a559f'
Cloning into 'eclipse.jdt.core'...
error: cannot spawn git: No such file or directory
Clone of 'http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/cbi/eclipse.jdt.core' into submodule path 'eclipse.jdt.core' failed

Only eclipse.jdt is checked out.

Any help is appreciated.

Yes, some versions of git don't support that option.

Just clone aggregator repo and then use the git submodules command to make sure the submodules have the correct checkout/working directory.

I faced a problem to clone a repository (both eclipse version: 4.x & 3.x) on linux using command below from http://wiki.eclipse.org/CBI/Eclipse_Platform_Build:

  -u, --upload-pack <path>
                        path to git-upload-pack on the remote
  --depth <depth>       create a shallow clone of that depth

Has anybody seen the same issue?
