I created a bare git repository and pushed to as root. Then I ran
su myuser and ran the following commands:
$ whoami myuser $ mkdir t $ cd t $ git clone ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:1234/git3 Cloning into git3... email@example.com's password: fatal: '/git3' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly $ git clone /home/myuser/git3 Cloning into git3... done.
Why is ssh failing? I can clone it by using the local path, and
whoami shows myuser -- I am not root. Just to make sure I have the addr right I wrote
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -p 1234 by copy/pasting the info rather then typing it.
I don't understand why ssh isn't working. I know i had it working on this remote box, but I upgraded from debian lenny to squeeze and recently I made various config changes. I don't understand why I can't use git with ssh here.
