Hi Michael and Konstantin,
Thanks a lot for the fast answers. I checked the permissions of the repository
directory, ran the chown and chmod commands and was able to push ! Great ! Now
I guess I can (re-)learn these permissions things.
Concerning the repository location, I tried to follow the instructions given in
the Pro Git book (but maybe did it wrong ?...). Is this a problem to have them
here ? Anyway, I will try to make other repo' elsewhere to practice my hand and
see how it works.
Thanks again for your help. Setting this up drove me crazy during the pasts
days ! :-)
PS: oh and the perms of the /tmp folder are 'drwxr-xr-x' so I got to fix this
as well if I got it correctly. But one problem at a time.
