Error obtaining Helios source

Reported by Erick Nascimento | February 25th, 2011 @ 09:47 AM

I'm following Helios install instructions from http://documentation.heliosvoting.org/install,
and when getting the source from the git repo, I've got the following error after "git checkout origin/pure-django":

[root@Fedora helios]$ git clone git://github.com/benadida/helios-server.git Cloning into helios-server...
remote: Counting objects: 1917, done.

[root@Fedora helios]$ cd helios-server [root@Fedora helios-server]$ git checkout origin/pure-django error: Updating the following directories would lose untracked files in it:



[root@Fedora helios-server]$ git --version git version

If I force the checkout it receive this:

[root@Fedora helios-server]$ git checkout -f origin/pure-django Note: checking out 'origin/pure-django'.

You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.

If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:

git checkout -b new_branch_name

HEAD is now at d9523b5... Alias generation

What is the issue? How should I proceed?

Thank you very much.
