I am a recently setup a git server on mac os ,meanwhile I use a git
client on ubuntu to do interaction with this git server.
I have a code directory(it's very large ,about 1G ) and I did the
following commands to push it to server side:
1. cd ~/test
2. git init
3. git add .
4. git commit -m "clean copy for first commit to server"
5. git remote add origin
6. git push origin master
In the code ,there are some directories which contain some link files
,something like this:
> cd asm
arch arch-mb86r0x arch-s3c4510b config.h
> ll st
lrwxrwxrwx 1 gitadmin ubuntu10 11 2012-09-26 14:00
arch -> arch-sc8810/
my problem is ,this link file "arch" can't be committed to my local
repository at step 4 ,so after i finished the step 6 for push ,if i clone
ths remote repo on server ,i can't see the link file "arch" at all so that
i can't get a total same code copy as original source.
But I also did try to make a simple code sample directory which only
have a directory with one file and a link file to this directory , i can
commit this code sample to local repo and push it to server side
successfully ! Then if i checkout the code from remote ,i can get a total
same code copy: a directory with one file and a link file to this directory
---- I am totally confused ...
Is there anyone can help me out?
