I need some help. I have two branches: "master" and "add_articles".
I've been doing my work in add_articles and I wanted to merge the
changes in to master prior to doing a deploy of my application.
Here's the sequence of events:
git branch - showed the active branch to be add_articles
git checkout master - switched the active branch to master
git merge add_articles - gave me this error:
warning: Cannot merge binary files: HEAD:public/images/
NewMexico_jul_1.jpg vs. add_articles:public/images/NewMexico_jul_1.jpg
CONFLICT (add/add): Merge conflict in public/images/
Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit the result.
I wasn't sure what to do so I tried deleting the NewMexico_jul_1.jpg
file from the public/images directory in master. That didn't work. I
got the following message:
fatal: You are in the middle of a conflicted merge.
I tried doing a "git rm" command to remove the jpg file and got this
public/images/NewMexico_jul_1.jpg: needs merge
I'm totally stuck. Can someone tell me how to proceed?
Thank you very much,
