Since SourceForge refused to solve the
sync issues at gitscm.sf.net
I decided to move the git hosting to
OSDN that supports us promptly.
Now you can download android-x86 code
via git or http protocols:
repo init -u git://git.osdn.jp/gitroot/android-x86/manifest
repo init -u http://scm.osdn.jp/gitroot/android-x86/manifest
where $branch could be marshmallow-x86 or
nougat-x86. I'll push more older branches later.
For those who use the manifest from SF URL
, you should be able to switch
to the new URL smoothly.
Just do the above 'repo init' command in your existing
android-x86 tree and then do 'repo sync'.
If you are using the manifest of git.code.sf.net
you can still switch to the new URL.
But you may encounter the force-sync issue
error: Cannot fetch platform/build (GitError: --force-sync not
enabled; cannot overwrite a local work tree. If you're comfortable
with the possibility of losing the work tree's git metadata, use `repo
sync --force-sync build` to proceed.)
You need to add --force-sync option to 'repo sync'
to force sync it. But it will delete your local
repository so you will lose all local commits
and branches that are not published yet.
Make sure you've backed up the data you
want to keep before force sync. (what's why I
insist to keep our git url hierarchies as AOSP)
I'll try to keep the code synced between
OSDN and sf.net
in the near future.
But I can't guarantee to do it forever.
Please switch to the new OSDN URL
as soon as possible.
