Yes, such problem was solved not so a short time ago. Specially for u and other bad vista users, i will install vista enterprise sp1 on vmware, just say me - x86 or x64 version?Haos wrote:When we had first introduced GIT as our backup i had an attempt to try it out, Vista SP1. Installed that recommended TortotiseGit... which was a gross mistake. It just locked up all of my shell extensions, from new file to 7zip... It actively refused to uninstall, throwing away msi errors on missing installer. Had to hunt it down with orcas and clean up registry manually, then reinstall every app used in shell extensions. Painful. Do not want to try it again unless really sure it would be working. I`m using svn for other projects and will not uninstall it just to make tortoisegit work, if that would be the issue.
I give 2 links, that explain my position. In opposition - i don't see nothing, else than we are currently using svn and don't want try anything else and Alex Ionescu using Mac, so he don't like how to git support Mac ( http://code.google.com/p/git-osx-instal ... list?can=3 ).Haos wrote:And frankly speaking q4a, this is not a place for such decission. Choosing main repo is up to developers and project coordinator, not forum users. Also, your fanatical "i am right and you must be wrong" approach is not helping at all. What more, your attitude in this matter is actively deterring people from supporting GIT as main repo. I`d suggest having a few deep breaths and reconsideration.
All this is bullshit. I need really weighty arguments against git!
PS Fireball wanted to give me access to new cmake branch, but all brunches using svn - that's why this poll and using git so important for me.
