  • Greetings!

    Attempting to build Liquidsoap from source with these instructions


    but can't get past this error...

    xx@airtime241:~/liquidsoap-full# make init
    git fetch
    git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/master master
    error: unknown option `set-upstream-to=origin/master'

       or: git branch [options] [-l] [-f] <branchname> [<start-point>]
       or: git branch [options] [-r] (-d | -D) <branchname>...
       or: git branch [options] (-m | -M) [<oldbranch>] <newbranch>

  • I think you need to upgrade your version of Git. The build scripts are working fine, but that error indicates the version of Git on your local machine is out of date: you want v1.8.0 at least. ("--set-upstream-to" is a new flag, which your version doesn't seem to understand).

    To check, run `git --version` from a terminal.

  • Hi Steven,

    I have the same problem using debian wheezy and I can't seem to upgrade git from v1.7.x to v1.80.

    Any suggestions?

  • ///sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb http://apt.sourcefabric.org/ wheezy main
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian wheezy-backports main

    sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports install git
