I think I need to get something straight, before I get GIT set up again on my newly-installed PC.
I remember the pain when I tried to “get latest” in the past, because git would bugger up the files. The solution was to amend the git config file (i believe setting the auto-crlf to false). However, installing GIT shows me this page:
… aassuming I’m remembering the option I had to set before, that puts it in the third mode [which it says not recommended for cross-platform]. So, this leads me to think that the Juce repository is configured inappropriately. Am I just misinterpreting things here? If I’ve seen that message before, that’ll explain why I’ve always had this problem [because option 1 is the OBVIOUS choice]. I don’t remember seeing it (or even understanding why the **** git would need me to make such stupid manual config steps to get it to work properly), but seeing it now - well, it seems like it’s making some sense. In that, something might be better changed at the other end.
Of course, I could be remembering everything wrong. Still, I’m leaving my GIT installer at that screen til I get some feedback on which option I should actually choose I don’t want to have to go through any of that again.
