The problem is, for git-merge: When this happens, git-merge must decide which remote-tracking-branch to merge into the currently checked out local branch. zldrq commented Aug 1, 2015 never saw that coming! The pull error message suggests updating .git/config, but ideally we should tell users how to set this up.

When I did a git config -l, seemed to understand the problem. whit537 commented Mar 25, 2013 Well, next thing: $ git branch master * pull/782 $ $ git pull Your configuration specifies to merge with the ref 'pull/782' from the remote, but colinpade commented Mar 30, 2015 worked for me! I would see that my colleague had created feature/cute-labels and usually I can just check out the branch name and Git makes a local branch from the remote one and sets

This is something that > cannot be done with the "detached head" technique.

For example, "git rebase --against temp" for rebasing the current branch against temp (instead of "git rebase temp") or "git rebase --against HEAD master" (rather than "git rebase HEAD master"); the http://osdir.com/ml/git/2009-07/msg00259.html mhotan commented Jun 10, 2015 👍 facekapow commented Jul 26, 2015 100 X 👍, Thanks!

Since git didn't know which remote I meant (and can't tell that they are the same thing), it didn't know what to do. ypandit commented Mar 25, 2013 👍 Darep commented Mar 25, 2013 ❤️ iqbalhasnan commented Mar 25, 2013 joelmccracken commented Mar 25, 2013 The way I normally do this is just to git branch share|improve this question edited Mar 4 '15 at 12:48 asked Sep 8 '09 at 16:53 che 8,74032660 Just added some terminology, and some suggestions (just leads to Comment Name * Email * Website Contact Email: [emailprotected] Twitter: @lornajane Phone: +44 113 830 1739 Links Go PHP7 (ext) Joind.In ZCE Links Bundle ZCE Questions Pack Books and Videos ©

I still haven't worked out how to fix it properly, since I want to continue to push/pull to both repo's, but manually adding the info to the project's .git/config works, e.g.: git remote add -f other git branch --track other remotes/other/master But I'm getting the error "error: Not tracking: ambiguous information for ref refs/remotes/other/master". I just don't care about the tracking stuff. Subsequent pulls and pushes worked as I expected.

I looked in .git/config and sure enough I had two remotes which both had the same fetch line:fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*We had a problem with our jump host one day and I'd So, I run git clone --mirror . Anyone Understand how the chain rule was applied here?

If you try to 'git-checkout' a remote-tracking branch, you will get a detached HEAD.

pents90 commented Feb 7, 2014 @whit537, I' m getting the same issue as you (Your configuration specifies to merge with the ref 'pull/782' from the remote, but no such ref was When the cost of certain activities changes dramatically (which git does by making lots new things possible and fast), formerly "exotic" usecases can become natural and common -- and really helpful. Handy, if you're hacking on something. I agree, but neither can be done without great difficulty outside of libcurl.
