Installation Problem with GIT
I'm using OpenFOAM vor over a year and now switches operating systems and wanted to install the version 1.5.x with git.


git clone git://
created the directories, but when I change to OpenFOAM-1.5.x and run


git pull git://
I'm getting this error:


sega@M1530:~/OpenFOAM-1.5.x$ git pull 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

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

See git-config(1) for details.

Any ideas whats wrong?

git pull
If you're in the directory OpenFOAM-1.5.x, just try


git pull

Yes, its working.
But I have to create (and download) the third party directory and the linuxGcc directory?
