Re: [egit-dev] EGit with gitolite

Quoting Matthias Sohn <matthias.sohn@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>:

- "SSH2 home" under preference "General > Network Connections > SSH2"
  should point to the directory where the ssh keys are located
- is the environment variable HOME pointing to your user home directory
  containing .gitconfig and .ssh folder ?
- can you load the private ssh key from Eclipse ?
  to check that go to tab "Key Management" under
  preference "General > Network Connections > SSH2"
  and try to load the private key

Yes, I have played around with the key settings in General > Network Connections > SSH2. When the dialog comes up asking for the passphrase, it shows
the key it is using, in this case /home/eric/.ssh/id_rsa  which is the
correct key. ${HOME} is pointing to my home directory.

Hi -

I'm trying to get EGit to work with gitolite.  Every thing works
fine on the command-line.  For example I can clone like this:

git clone gitolite@xxxxxxxxxxxx:TEST

However when I try to clone from inside eclipse, EGit always
asks for my passphrase.  Even though I give it the correct passphrase,
it keeps asking for my passphrase as if the one I gave it wasn't correct.

I have tried several permutations for the remote repository URI
but still no luck.  I have tried pushing to a repository, but I still
get the same problem.

Am I missing something basic or perhaps EGit doesn't yet work with
