Yeah, I went through those pretty extensively.
I'm running Ubuntu edgy (6.10). I'm at work now, but I was having
troubles getting monotone to work. The dpkg was showing that it was
installed, but I couldn't find any trace of it...and the following
command from the GettingStarted page failed saying mtn wasn't recognized
(or something similar)
mtn --db=/stuff/OE.mtn pull monotone.openembedded.org org.openembedded.dev
Note: Directory was changed appropriately.
I just noticed this statement on the website: Still OK with Edgy (Ubuntu
6.10) but monotone version installed this way is pretty old and I had to
install from .deb present on monotone web site (dpkg -i xxx.deb). I'll
try that when I get home.
Any other thoughts? I thought the documentation seemed pretty
straightforward too until I ended up at a dead end. Oh well. I'll get it.
