Looking to try out git i followed some tutorials in the web, specifically: http://pthree.org/2008/11/28/setup-a-git-repository/ which looks nice and clean and things and worked up to a certain point. Until it comes to the push. Following this tutorial i always got the message:
No refs in common and none specified; doing nothing.
Perhaps you should specify a branch such as ‚master‘.
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
error: failed to push some refs to ’ssh://
Now, this is some kind of disturbing, cause it didnt come to a satisfactionary end for me, however: http://vmlinux.org/jocke/blog/programming got the answer prepared for me. You have to add the remote repository to be know to the local one, with the following steps:
git remote add origin ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/pub/git/projextX
git push origin master
Thats it, now you can use git push, like you’d do with mercurial for instance. I wonder how the guy from the first tutorial got around it, maybe its a version thing or something like that, however, i almost know nothing about git, but maybe i can provide the answer sometime in the future.
