Everytime I git pull tyhe Linus' sources but before I build I apply
Peter Zijlstra's fixes, Takashi Iwai's sources and Dave Miller's
sources. The sequence is:
# the Linus' sources
# external sources
git remote add some_name git://some_URL.git
git remote update
Then configure and I build. I noticed that especially Peter's
git-update very quickly, not as long as they did before.
Is my procedure correct? I am new to GIT.
What do you want to achieve? You want to build the tree that you have
added as a remote? If yes then you need to checkout a branch from that
git checkout -b your_branch_name some_name/branch_you_want
then you will have a new your_branch_name which points to the tip of the
remote's branch and you can configure and make the tree.
Please note that 'git remote add&& git remote update' will just add
commits from that remote tree and it doesn't affect your local copy
If you are new to GIT I would strongly encourage you to read through the
following ebook: http://progit.org/book/
