I am trying to install Gitolite3 on Ubuntu server LTS 14 x64, using the git docs.
First I created a user called
git as :
sudo adduser \ --system --shell /bin/bash --gecos\ 'Git SCM' --group --disabled-password git Adding system user `git' (UID 120) ... Adding new group `git' (GID 129) ... Adding new user `git' (UID 120) with group `git' ... Creating home directory `/home/git' ...
Then I generated the keys:
wdd@ubuntu-server:~$ ssh-keygen -t rsa Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/home/wdd/.ssh/id_rsa): Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): Enter same passphrase again: Your identification has been saved in /home/wdd/.ssh/id_rsa. Your public key has been saved in /home/wdd/.ssh/id_rsa.pub. The key fingerprint is: 24:76:b9:d1:15:63:71:00:5b:73:96:29:e2:be:4d:63 wdd@ubuntu-server The key's randomart image is: +--[ RSA 2048]----+ | ..X++o | | o.=.*o | | o =.o. . | | . + o. | | S. | | . E | | = . | | . . | | | +-----------------+
Then executed the following commands:
$ git clone git://github.com/sitaramc/gitolite $ gitolite/install -ln # assumes $HOME/bin exists and is in your $PATH $ gitolite setup -pk $HOME/.ssh/auhtroized_keys
And this should be the default setting of the gitolite should be ok.
So I go on my windows client machine and want to clone the
gitolite-admin repo by:
git clone git@gitserver:gitolite-admin
But it asks me for password,
wdd@MUSAHAIDARI-PC /c/Users/wdd $ git clone git@gitserver:gitolite-admin Cloning into 'gitolite-admin'... git@gitserver's password:
Here I think we are not supposed to be asked for password, if so what is the password? Since I have not set any password.
I need to mention that I could SSH without password from my PC to Linux-server
