    How to deal with git clone error?

    Views: 10524 | No Comments

    I ran into a github HTTPS clone error as this:

    $ git clone https://github.com/ideawu/ssdb.git
    Initialized empty Git repository in /xxx/.git/
    Cannot get remote repository information.
    Perhaps git-update-server-info needs to be run there?

    Try to use this instead: git clone git://github.com/ideawu/ssdb.git, problem solved.

    DO NOT copy the git url from github, because it is in the form of: git@github.com:ideawu/ssdb.git, this need you to set up a LOT of things! Using git://github.com/xxx/yyy.git is the easiest way to clone a read-only repo annonymous.
