Subject Re: Git Rebase Question

Hi Mike,

I’m willing to help you with this, but the easiest way would be for you to point me to the
repo you are working on.
This way I could actually see what’s going on.

Anyway, from your description, all the files might be new in your modified branch, but a file
with the same name might have been introduced in the 4.5 branch upstream.
Could that be the case?

I can think of other situations that could result in such conflicts, for example, when your
modified branch has merges coming form other local or remote branches.
If you could point me to your modified branch and tell me which branch yo want to pull and
rebase from, I could give it a try and let you know what I find.

Hi everyone,

I have a Git question that relates to a rebase problem I've been seeing.

I have a branch I've been working on the past six or seven weeks.

As you'd expect, every now and then I update my local 4.5 branch from the
upstream CloudStack one and perform a rebase.

The weird part is that even though all of the files in my modified 4.5
branch are new (there are no updates to any existing files or any deletions
of existing files), when I try to rebase on top of an updated 4.5, I see an
error when it tries to apply one patch (there are about 50 or so commits
being applied and I've typically had trouble in the middle some where).

The error informs me that the patch can't be applied because it would
conflict with an existing, modified file of mine (and, as such, it says I
should stash before doing the rebase).

For one, no matter which file it refers to, the file in question is not in
a modified state. When I do a git status, nothing comes up modified either.

That being the case, I do a git rebase --continue, but get an error saying
that nothing's been added and so a continue can't be started.

I end up having to either skip the patch (and reapply it manually once the
rebase is done) or perform some other hack to get past this issue.
