Hi all!

I am having some trouble updating OF15 to OF 15x!
When I follow the instruct on the opencfd website

git clone http://repo.or.cz/r/OpenFOAM-1.5.x.git
works fine
but the following instruction
git pull http://repo.or.cz/r/OpenFOAM-1.5.x.git
doesn't (please see below!)
Any git expert out there??:-)

Thanxs,
Thom

thomas@wkstation:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5.x> git pull http://repo.or.cz/r/OpenFOAM-1.5.x.git
You asked me to pull without telling me which branch you
want to merge with, and 'branch.master.merge' in
your configuration file does not tell me either. Please
name which branch you want to merge on the command line and
try again (e.g. 'git pull <repository> <refspec>').
See git-pull(1) for details on the refspec.

If you often merge with the same branch, you may want to
configure the following variables in your configuration
file:

branch.master.remote = <nickname>
branch.master.merge = <remote-ref>
remote.<nickname>.url = <url>
remote.<nickname>.fetch = <refspec>

See git-config(1) for details.

This is indeed not the bug of the code,but is really one misleading guide for new users.

Please do the following:

git clone http://repo.or.cz/r/OpenFOAM-1.5.x.git
cd OpenFOAM-1.5.x
git pull

Sorry for choosing the wrong forum section

when I saw where I posted it accidentally, I posted on the main OpenFoam forum afterwards...

Thanks for the help lin, it works fine now
