Clonning from git gets stuck
What is correct command / syntax to clone code from git?
cloning into qtbase
does not find "tree"
and the Getting the source code section
$ git clone git://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git
or (if you're behind a firewall and want to use the https protocol):
$ git clone https://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git
Then check out the target branch (see Branch Guidelines):
I was missing the "software" update option in OS setup.
But I was able to clone before that change using command.
I did update repositories list anyway.
now I cannot clone anything from https://code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qtbase.git, even using command .
And I am successful cloning from another test repository - both using Qt or command.
That looks as problem between Qt and that particular repository
I need to verify if the repository is correct , but this "getting stuck cloning " does not help much.
Because you are still using the wrong link.
For example, using the git protocol it's: git://code.qt.io/qt/qtbase.git
@AnneRanch because it's the correct path for the https protocol to clone Qt Creator.
