Prepare Git

At this point we are able to prepare the development environment. Make sure network is working properly and the system is up-to-date.

Now install the git package

 pakfire install git

After that, prepare your environment Initial Git setup and finally clone the IPFire-3.x repository as described in Source Code.

Now you have your own build environment.

Prepare branch

If you like to take part in development, it is useful to cerate a branch for every project you like to start. E.g. you want to make an update of the programm “grep”. Simply create a branch for this project like this:

git branch grep -t origin/master

then change into this branch with

git checkout grep

Now you are on the branch “grep” and you can change the code and commit changes.
