I am trying to download Android source from Git repository. I would require a lot of free space on my home folder to download the whole source and build it. So I decided to download the whole source in another partition where there is sufficient space. Mine is a Wubi install and the drive in question is a NTFS filesystem. So whenever I issue a command to sync from github I get an error saying that
GitError: filesystem must support symlinks. I guess this is a problem arising due to the filesystem being NTFS.
My question is: is there any way to circumvent this? Can I do something like mentioned in the comment on this question to circumvent this problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
