How to use Hg-to-Git tool – fast-export?

I have tried the instructions from this SO post:

git clone git://
git init git_repo
cd git_repo
~/fast-export/ -r /path/to/old/mercurial_repo
git checkout HEAD

However when doing git checkout HEAD it throws:

  • Is it possible to use BitBucket with GitEye?
  • Error in npm install command

  • error: pathspec 'HEAD' did not match any file(s) known to git

    What is the work-around for this?
