Error retrieving from github


#1

Hi,

I’ve been trying to get IronRuby from GIT using the steps in Ben’s blog
(http://blog.benhall.me.uk/2008/12/downloading-ironruby-from-github.html)
but keep getting this error:

github.com[0: 65.74.177.129]: errno=Invalid argument
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Invalid argument)

I was wondering if anyone else has seen this or could point me in the
right direction?

Thanks,

Colin

Hi Colin,
You might want to check with this guide
http://github.com/guides/getting-a-copy-of-your-github-repo
first.

Hope this helps,

Ta for the link, done all that now but same error. However “ssh -v
removed_email_address@domain.invalid” failed so I’m guessing it must be a firewall/proxy error
but can’t get that config to work either and using HTTP just brings
other errors (http://github.com/blog/92-http-cloning).

Guess its just a little less friendly that I would have hoped, will keep
trying anyway.

Ta,

Colin

To just do a clone, you shouldn’t need ssh or any special firewall rules
try
using http instead: git clone http://github.com/ironruby/ironruby.git

Hi,

Yeah I tried that but got other errors (“Cannot get remote repository
information”). I’m guessing its proxy relate but I feel like I’ve wasted
way too much time chasing my tail with so I must admit I gave up and
just download the zip from github.

Ta to you Jirapong for the help, I guess I need to learn to use git at
some point.
