How do I resolve a conflict with qconflicts and meld?

Asked by Artis Rozentāls on 2010-08-13

I've been experimenting with conflict resolution using qconflicts and meld. I'd introduce a merge conflict, and as qconflicts to run meld, resolve the conflict in the THIS file and mark the conflict as resolved.

I expected THIS to be promoted to the working tree upon resolution, instead BASE, OTHER and THIS are removed and the file is left with the text conflict marker.

What am I missing?

How can you configure the meld invocation? I think you should set it to save result of merge to original file, not to THIS file.

As far as I can tell meld doesn't have any invocation options that do that.

OK, looking in the code of extmerge plugin (you may want to install it to get better interaction with meld) you need to configure meld tool via qconfig as:

meld %b %T %o

Thus before meld invocation will be created a temporary copy of THIS file which you need to edit in order to resolve conflicts and save when you make it. If merge was successfull (meld exits with exit code 0) then this temporary file will replace original file with conflicts.

I put that into qconfig, now when I check the "Use Configured Default" the grayed out "Merge tool" textbox reads: "Missing the flag: %r. Configure in qconfig under the merge tab."

Wonder what or were to fill, however... lib/conflicts.py doesn't even have a %T flag.
