Discussion== '''NorthWind87: ''' With regard to the "windows line error" question, is it not enough to simply set core.autocrlf to false and core. eol to lf ?
git config - -unset core.autocrlf git config --global --unset core.autocrlf git config --global core.autocrlf false
git config --unset core.eol git config --global --unset core.eol git config --global core.eol lf
git ls- files - z | xargs - 0 rm; git checkout .
That should be enough to avoid checking out crlf in the future and to checkout the repo again with lf line endings for all files.
