The easiest way of using git behind a proxy is using tsocks. It is just Straightforward:

1 – Install tsocks

2 – Configure tsocks by creating a /etc/tsocks.conf like this:

local = <localnet>/255.0.0.0
server = proxy_ip
server_type = 5
server_port = proxy_port

3 – Use it:

$ tsocks git pull

Just that!

I had also tried the proxy using the GIT_PROXY_COMMAND=”/usr/bin/proxy-wrapper

where proxy-wrapper is

#!/bin/bash
nc -xproxy_addreess:proxy_port -X5 $*

But IMHO tsocks is more convenient because it is not needed to set and unset GIT_PROXY_COMMAND every time.

OSTS 2012 has ended and it’s time to say goodbye. Tomorrow I’m getting the flight back to Brasil with the ” Mission accomplished” feeling.

I cannot say that this was the best conference ever because it is difficult to overcome the dead Bossa Conference. However there were so many great presentations, talks and important meetings happening here. It was an amazing Conference in a Wonderful place.

And the most important part was to put faces to the irc/emails nicknames after 7 months working here.

Nice to meet you face to face guys! I hope to see you soon.

I was going to start this post with a yet another “back to blogging” phrase, but this is already becoming a cliche here, so I’ m starting just telling that I’m not doing any promises at this time and also telling what to not to expect here since this is the first post after I’ve joined Intel’s Linux Graphics Team .

  • Don’ t expect regular posts.
  • Don’ t expect Intel’s Linux Graphics Status and Updates. Eugeni is already doing this job very well on his blog.
  • Don’ t expect Intel’s news
  • Don’ t expect Performance Status or Benchmarks. Phoronix already does it vey well.

So, to finish this “first” post I’d like just to mention that the new front page’s picture is just a part of our new OTC-BR lab!
