It’s nearly to seven in the morning (new english expressions) and before going to bed, I would like to share this experience, as the most stuff that I found over the net wasn’t very impressive to my tired eyes.
I today started dealing with github and git, although there have been months since I first created an account.
So, sometime, while trying to upload some files to a public repository of mine, I got the quoted message, displayed in the title.
I tried to find a quick solution to stackoverflow, refering to the first hits of google, here
, but while being in a rush, my eyes caught words like unix, etc., so I tried to found out by myself what was going on, because the exact error message, did also included the filename that was causing the error.
: Before continuing reading this, be sure that you tried the following command in the git shell:
git config core.autocrlf false
Opening the file was like a dream:
- What I quickly understood in the fore-mentioned links, was what I exactly seeing in my file.
- The little knowledge that I accomplished to acquire through this quick reading, made a light flash in my mind.
The exact image was sth like this :
So, I just had to hit my Backspace button
and everything got as default; successful push
to github accomplished!
If the above wasn’t enough and you countinue getting errors, try to open the specified file with Notepad++, go to Edit => EOL Converion => Windows Format.
Dunno if this really helped you or it made your situation more difficult, but I thought about sharing it, ’cause newbies like me in github may find it useful.
