In git version 184.108.40.206 (in arch) I'm getting this message when doing git
fatal: empty ident name (for <tim@newton.(none)>) not allowed
I get this message in a brand new repository.
I'm getting the same message in Ubuntu 12.10 which has 220.127.116.11
The message suggests I do
git config --global user.email "y...@example.com"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"
to set your account's default identity.
but I've done this
[tim@newton git_scratchpad]$ git config -l
git works as I expect on another machine with 1.7.9
I'm at my wits end and I don't know what to do.
