    I am working on ubuntu 10.04 and try to download android source code. After initialize the built environment according to Initializing a Build Environment | Android Open Source, javac -version is javac 1.6.0_24. then, I run:
    repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git

    but it comes out these errors:
    Getting manifest ...
    from git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/mydata/d-linux/Android_SourceCode/mydroid/.repo/repo/main.py", line 238, in <module>
    _Main(sys.argv[1:])

    repo._Run(argv)

    raise GitError('filesystem must support symlinks')
    error.GitError: filesystem must support symlinks

    I have try to run the repo with python 2.6, python 2.5, and python 2.4 by editing the repo file exec python2.5 and exec python2.4. It result in the same error.
    What is missing? what should I do now :thinking:
