Re: [nslu2-linux] Re: Getting started with development for the slug
- Ah, just noticed that you are using colinux, like me. Got the git problem too. I started by installing a raw git tarball, then I noticed that upgrading to debian unstable (which is stable enough to build a linux distro) was a more convenient solution to get the right package versions.
Also note that you will need a *huge* disk image for colinux to build more than the simple "<osname>-image" :)On Sun, Feb 1, 2009 at 6:02 PM, Sébastien Lorquet <squalyl@...> wrote:

(no drops etc., .5 MBPS) and the failure happens when setup is about
20-25% indexing complete. I cant seem to find a newer version of git.
apt-get cant find it. I have to look for it manually I guess. I am
running Debian 4.0 Etch on CoLinux.
