Git Pull Error - commit your changes or stash them before you can merge
#1
I'm getting a strange error when I attempt to perform a git pull to get the latest changes to CoreBOS.


Code:
]# git pull

Updating 1afe78b..efc210f
error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge:
        log4php.properties
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.
Aborting



What it is trying to tell me?

Hi.

It's inform you that you have modify the file log4php.properties and seems that this update want to update this file too, so you have to do a git checkout log4php.properties first and after execute again git pull command.

thank you... that did the trick. I couldn't remember any time that I had modified that file, so I wasn't sure exactly what my next step was supposed to be. It had suggested performing a git stash, but when I did that and then issued git pull I got a brand new install that came down. I had to restore from backup. That one had me scratching my head a little.
