How do you set the 16 Terminal Colors for Git-Bash?

Is there a different way to set the 16 terminal colors for git-bash? Ideally, I’d like to know the location of a config file so that editing is easier, and the settings are portable. It seems the only way I can see so far is to manually edit the boxes from the properties window, but […]

Upgrading Git Bash to run newly downloaded ruby 2.0.0

I’m on a Windows machine, so unfortunately I can’t use RVM, which would make this super easy. I previously downloaded Rails and Ruby on a new Windows machine. Rails 4.0.3 and Ruby 1.9.3. For some reason, the package I installed didn’t install the new version of ruby. So I just went to http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/ and downloaded […]

Egit very slow at handling big projects

The problem is that Egit/Eclipse is very slow at dealing with big Java projects (~2,000k files). Very slow means following on a windows 7/quad core/SSD setup: 60 seconds for drawing the commit window another 30 s for doing the commit (would be acceptable) 60 s for drawing the push window (changes view) another 120 s […]

How does Git fetch changes from an UNC path?

I have a Git repository in a shared folder on a Windows PC which I am accessing with an UNC path, e.g. git clone //server/share/MyRepo.git When I fetch changes from this repository over a VPN from home it takes a very long time for git-upload-pack.exe to run. I realise that there is no server (as […]

Git client with “autopush”?

Does a git client exist (preferably for windows) with autopush functionality? As in automatically pushes to origin/master on commit. I am aware this goes against the whole git methodology and can be achieved with hooks.

Using “KexAlgorithms diffie-hellman-group1-sha1” did not resolve “no matching key exchange method found” error

There’s a lot of questions about the following error, but they all have same solution which did not have any effect: $ git push Unable to negotiate with 192.168.XXX.XXX: no matching key exchange method found. Their offer: diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and […]

Git Push To Remote Server Hangs Using Cygwin

I’ve set up a repository on my server and have created a local directory using the directions at thelucid.com. on server: ssh git@example.com mkdir my_project.git cd my_project.git git init –bare […]

Fatal: not a git repository – after BSoD

I was committing and then my Windows ( .. 🙁 ) machine crashed and presented me with the lovely and infamous Blue Screen of Death. I rebooted and went right back to work, only to discover that something’s seriously wrong with my local git repo. “Fatal: not a git repository” … Well, that escalated quickly. […]

Git difftool not launching external DiffMerge program

I’ve been following the directions in the “blog entry by Dave” link in this answer as I’m on Windows 7 and do use SourceGear’s DiffMerge tool. I’ve added the git\cmd directory to my PATH system variable and put my git-diff-diffmerge-wrapper.sh file in there: #!/bin/sh “C:\Program Files\SourceGear\Common\DiffMerge\sgdm.exe” “$1” “$2” | cat (Yes, it’s the correct path […]
