'git am' doubt

Thiago Farina-2
Hi,

I'm trying to apply a patch from the mailing list using 'git am'.

What I'm doing is:

- In gmail:
 - Save original, then I copied the content to a text editor.
- In text editor:
 - Remove the first empty line.
 - Save the file in the same directory where I have the git source.
- In git directory:
 - $ git am -s ./filename.mbox

Of course I'm doing something wrong here, but I don't know what.
The error is:
cat: /home/tfarina/git/.git/rebase-apply/next: No such file or directory
previous rebase directory /home/tfarina/git/.git/rebase-apply still
exists but mbox given.

Sorry if this is already answered before in this mailing list, but I
couldn't find it.

Thanks anyway for the time and help.

Perhaps you tried this previously and 'git am' failed?
In which case, run 'git am --abort'.


Now.. I've _never_ had luck saving patches out of gmail.
But, I've had good luck with its imap interface.
I use mutt, save emails to an mbox file, and use 'git am'
on them.  This has worked great for me.

For sending emails to the list, I use msmtp and a
~/.gitconfig setting:


[sendemail]
        smtpserver = /usr/bin/msmtp


Then it's simply 'git send-email <patch-file>'.


Here's a random page explaining how to use mutt with gmail.

I can send you my .muttrc if that helps.

Here's the git wiki page about msmtp, gmail, and
git-send-email:

I didn't try before.

Yeah, I tried with Evolution, and it worked for me, so the problem was
with Gmail.

I'm using send-email to send my patches too. If you could, send me
your .muttrc, I will appreciate, may be I can try to use it instead of
Evolution.

Thanks for your help. ;)
