Hello,

I have created a bare repository:

$ mkdir remote.git

angelo@ANGELO-PC /d/gtest (master)
$ git init --bare
Initialized empty Git repository in d:/gtest/

and then tried to open it with the git gui, but have got the message:
"remote.git is not a git repository".

The git gui is the one that I have downloaded from the git web site for windows:

gt-gui version 0.16.GITGUI
git version 1.7.11.msysgit.1

Thank you
-Angelo Borsotti

This creates a bare repository in d:/gtest, not in
d:/gtest/remote.git. You'll need to cd into remote.git to create a
bare repo.

So this message is correct.

Be as it may, as soon as you've initialized the repo as required, git
gui will (probably) tell you:

"Cannot use bare repository:

d:/gtest/remote.git"

So nothing gained there. So I'm wondering what you expect git gui to
give you in a bare repo? It seems to me that this tool is specifically
aimed at non-bare repos, allowing for creating commits, merges and
whatnot; all things you cannot typically do in a bare repo.

Hi,

Please remember to reply to all when discussing things on the git mailing list.

Actually git-gui 0.16.0 is telling me that it cannot use bare
repositories, much in the vein of what I wrote earlier. Don't know if
it matters that I'm on Linux though.

I get "Not a Git repository: remote.git" as well, when I run
git gui "somewhere" (i.e. not in "remote.git") and the select 
"Open Existing Repository".

I get "Cannot use bare repository: .../remote.git" when I run git gui
from inside the "remote.git" directory.

Both on WinXP with msysGit.

Then the misleading message is due to the Italian localization of the git gui.

I have removed the Italian localization so as to make git gui use the
English one.
The result is the same as I have found before.
The message is: " Not a Git repository: remote.git".
Thus, the misleading message is there.

I'm not seeing what you're seeing. I'm running git 1.7.12.1 and I get
exactly this message:

    Cannot use bare repository:

    /Users/bsmith/tmp/repo.git

When I do exactly this:

    $ cd ~/tmp
    $ mkdir repo.git
    $ cd repo.git
    $ git init --bare
    $ git gui

What, exactly, are you doing?

Hi Ben,

I am running git gui on Windows 7. Are you running it on Linux?

Hi Ben,

I run the same test on Linux, and have got the same results as you did.
So the problem is only on Windows.

i.e.:

And the same on Linux with Git v1.7.12
