once let me clarify what i'm doing.
as in this link http://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-nvidia/git-commit-notice
i changed the mode of post-receive-email in
then i linked it with the post-receive file in my prjct-dir/.git/hooks
prjct-dir/.git> cat >hooks/post-receive <<END
? echo 'i'm working' >tmp/myhook
i got a error
hooks/post-receive: Permission denied.
i think this is because of the link. is this the process to do a hook?
