Know your CRLF in git

28 January 2012

Today I wanted to install nodejs on my debian machine, and I got stuck with strange errors about command not found. I hate to admit it, but it was the fault of strange CRLF and the fix was setting my git defaults to a sensible value:

git config --global core.autocrlf false

If you want the reasoning behind this, read http://code52.org/line-endings.html and then set it. But set it.

After that I could install nodejs with one simple line of nvm. I’ll write about that soon.
