Hi Jim,

I tried the link specified by you before,
but i got the following error:

"Getting repo ...
   from git://android.kernel.org/tools/repo.git
fatal: exec ~/bin/git-proxy failed.
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly "

Moreover, I am not connecting through internet through a Proxy Server.
what should I give for proxy and port in the git-proxy file for the line:

exec ~/bin/corkscrew <proxy name> <proxy port> $*

I gave the following values and got the above mentioned fatal error:

exec ~/bin/corkscrew git://git.koolu.org/freerunner/platform/manifest.git
9418 $*

Please help.
