Git behind the wall
« on: December 26, 2007, 01:36:11 am »
I install VL 5.9 final and works fine on my tosh (except internal SDcard reader and modem which never work since first VL install (VL SOHO 5.0)). Today I try to install compiz 0.5.2 and eventually stuck on fusion-icon which cannot be installed because of this :

$ git-clone git://
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/gondes/fusion-icon/.git/
fatal: Unable to look up (port 9418) (Temporary failure in name resolution)
fetch-pack from 'git://' failed.

Seems that the cause is proxy setting (again, as I posted on other thread, thanks to Hanumizzle & M0E). Git depends on curl which I'm sure curl works fine since Google-earth uses curl and works well. Any suggestions ?

Networking isn't my specialty, sorry  :-\
But if git is giving you a bad time, why not try gitweb so you can get the icon-tray sources?;a=snapshot;h=HEAD;sf=tgz Good luck  :)

I'm so stupid, why didn't I click "snapshot" but "tree"?  :-[
But I'm still curious cannot get git behind the wall.
Thanks exeterdad, this helps much.
