Has anyone tried using `git' from opencsw package in order to work with bitbucket source hosting service (under solaris10)?
I tried to use git as the bitbucket documentation explains, and - under Debian GNU/Linux, it worked flawlessly as described, but - under Solaris 10, I got Authentication Failed message.
I even tried to run truss to see anything is suspicious but could not find any smoking gun under solaris why it failed. ldd git-binary didnd't show anything suspicious either (except for the libcrypt library which could be a suspicious to think about export restrictions. Have they shipped incompatible version? BUT since the password is typed into https: connection, I suspect it is only a matter of web-level cryptography and should be universal these days.)
I am now tempted to compile git suite under solaris 10, but I did find people who seem to be using git with bitbucket under solaris 10 and am wondering what could be wrong.
NOTE: In the initial post, I failed to mention clearly that it was HTTPS transport that failed for GIT.
That is, when I followed the bitbucket tutorial,
- git clone https:.... failed. (This uses HTTPS connection.)
But after that failure, I tried using SSH.
git clone git:.... succeeded.
(This uses underlying SSH connection.)
This means whatever mechanism is used by git command to send password by HTTPS protocol failed.
Given that we may have many issues trying to bypass firewall for SSH while access via HTTP or HTTPS is almost ubiquitous, I would like to see "git clone https:..." succeeds.
