Transition from SVN to git complete

Post by Graf Zahl » Sun Jun 23, 2013 10:24

As of now, GZDoom has discontinued using the old SVN repository and migrated to git.
Please use this from now on as no more commits will be made to the old SVN repository

You can find the new repository under the following link: https://github.com/coelckers/gzdoom

Just tried installing Git and TortoiseGit. I managed to get myself a copy of the source and it compiles. However, I get the following message:

Code: Select all

16>------ Build started: Project: zdoom, Configuration: Release Win32 ------
16>Checking gitinfo.h...
16>'git' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
16>operable program or batch file.
16>Failed to get commit info: No error
GZDoom runs but reports "unknown version".

I assume that I have to set something up from my side so that git.exe can be found. The file is at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\git.exe" (i.e. the default location). What do I need to do to get this working?

[edit] I think I got it - I need to set up the executable directory in Visual C++ right?

I have to say that the version numbers aren't very catchy. ;)

Code: Select all

2.8pre-12-g4500145

No, they sure aren't. But without a linear history it's hard to get incremental version numbers.
I wonder why you get 2.8pre, though. That's the latest ZDoom tag, there should at least be g1.9pre.

No idea. I'm getting 2.8pre for both ZDoom and GZDoom.

Should be fixed now. I didn't realize that tags have to be explicitly pushed.
