Problem with GIT (checkout)
I read the source "README" of Qt-Creater source archive.
I installed everything needed, but Git starts and after a while, I have that:
R:\msysgit\checkout>git clone git://gitorious.org/qt-creator/qt-creator.git qt-creator
Cloning into qt-creator...
remote: Counting objects: 255482, done.
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
fatal: early EOF
fatal: index-pack failed
git is msysgit, perl is installed, VS2010 is used, git in path, perl in path, qt-creator subdir exists.
And qt-creator dir is gone after that error messages.
Environment: Win2008R2 (admin rights)
Thank you for your help...
Just keep on trying. msysgit will time-out when checking out large amounts of code (qtwebkit in qt5 is another candidate) but it usually works somewhen.
is there an alternative to msysgit ?
Try using https or ssh as transfer protocol.
Some point i couldn't clone anything from gitorious using git protocol.

There should be a cygwin port and a Java implementation called JGit. But I use msysgit on a daily basis and it usually just works fine. I have had these time-out problems but they usually vanish after a few tries.
