Making 'git pull' work with Github2011-02-13 15:18:00 by Saz
As I'm using Github from different computers, I want to update my local repositories from Github. But git pull wasn't working out of the box and wants to know more information about.
You asked me to pull without telling me which branch you want to merge with, and 'branch.master.merge' in your configuration file does not tell me, either. Please specify which branch you want to use on the command line and try again (e.g. 'git pull <repository> <refspec>').
Executing the lines below in your repository will make it work as expected and you're able to use git pull.
git config branch.master.merge refs/heads/master git config branch.master.remote origin
