push fails?

Asked by Jeff Hill on 2010-05-10

I dont know if this is normal but will have to discard the work I did this weekend because a push failed.

Run command: bzr push --directory C:/epicsInBazaar/cvs-trunk/trunk --no-strict
Using saved push location: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~epics-core/epics-base/cvs-trunk/
bzr: ERROR: Cannot lock LockDir(http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~epics-core/epics-base/cvs-trunk/.bzr/branch/lock): Transport operation not possible: http does not support mkdir()

Hi Jeff,

as with all VCS I know, access using http transport is read-only.
You will have to use ssh transport to push changes.

Hope this helps,
Ralph

Hi Jeff,

As Ralph said, you can't write to Launchpad over http. You should use a command like
  bzr push lp:~epics-core/epics-base/cvs-trunk
which (assuming you've already run a 'bzr launchpad-login' command and set an ssh key through the website) will convert the lp: URI into a bzr+ssh: address.

We are not using the Launchpad Answers feature, it doesn't interact very well with the mailman software that runs our regular mailing lists. Please use core-talk for this kind of issue, or ask me directly.
