I ran into this too, although I'm running git-daemon via spawn-fcgi. In order to convince newer Gits that you know what you're doing, you just need to set HOME to somewhere Git can look. For example: HOME=/ /usr/lib/git/git-daemon … should work. On Gentoo, I added the following to /etc/conf.d/spawn-fcgi.fcgiwrap: ALLOWED_ENV="PATH HOME" HOME=/ Cheers, Trevor -- This email may be signed or encrypted with GnuPG (http://www.gnupg.org).
