I installed Turnkey Linux http://www.turnkeylinux.org/revision-control to have a Git server. The installation went fine and I created a user to use with git. It comes with a preinstalled repo called "helloworld.git".
In order to test GIT, I did
git clone git://192.168.56.101/git/helloworld.git and it cloned the repo just fine. I then went into the repo and made a change and did commited. Then I added the remote by doing
git remote add firstname.lastname@example.org:helloworld.git
I then did a push and it asked for my password as expecting but then said
helloworld.git does not appear to be a git repository
Am I not putting the right location for the remote repo? Also how do I go about creating my own repo on the server. I am fairly new at managing a GIT server. Thanks.
