Jenkins Git Init Fails

Sverre Moe-2
Cloning Git with an old version of Git now seems to fail

Is there any way to modify the git checkout to work around this problem?

Re: Jenkins Git Init Fails

Several alternatives:
  • If the repository is a smaller repository (less than 50 MB), then you could enable JGit in your installation and use JGit instead of command line git to perform the checkout.
  • Define a "git tool" for that target machine which will install and use a newer version command line git on that agent.
  • Compile a recent version of command line git on that target machine yourself so that it has the recent version available.
  • Replace 'checkout scm' by shell calls to perform the equivalent operation (git init, git config, git fetch, git checkout)
Command line git is now version 2.28.0, with 2.29.0 ready to release very soon.  Using command line git versions prior to 2.0 will miss many, many improvements that have been made to command line git.

Re: Jenkins Git Init Fails

Sverre Moe-2
Thanks for the suggestions.

We had an SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Build Agent, and it had Git-1.6 installed
I downloaded the Git distribution and performed a manual build and install.
On second thought perhaps using the "git tool" would be prefferable.
