I know very little about git or EGit. I installed EGit into Eclipse Indigo. I got a git path from someone who has some code in that repo. I tried to clone the repo. It failed with the following (name, host, and path elided):
Cannot list the available branches. Reason: myname@myhost:mypath: cannot execute: git-upload-pack 'mypath' bash: git-upload-pack: command not found
I then logged onto the box with Putty, using the same credentials and ran "which git-upload-pack", and it returned "/usr/local/bin/git-upload-pack".
