Hmm, did you run the git config command as the couchpot user? If you are running it as root, it does explain the behavior since when couchpotato is running it won’t be able to access that information.
You could try something like this (as root):
su couchpot -s /bin/sh -c "cd `pwd`; git config user.email \"firstname.lastname@example.org\""
su couchpot -s /bin/sh -c "cd `pwd`; git config user.name \"Your Name\""
Keep in mind that this did not happen to me at all. In fact, I don’t even have those values defined. This means that the problem is probably somewhere else. In this particular case it looks like git detected some changes in the app folder, and is trying to preventing you from losing them by issuing a ‘stash save’ call. That call requires a user name and email.
My actual advice to you is to make sure you are not changing the source code of CouchPotato, and discard any changes that you may have accidentally done with a command like this (as root):
su couchpot -s /bin/sh -c "cd `pwd`; git checkout -f"
Can anyone tell me how to update couchpotato from the command line. It does not seem to be working from the ui. On the “About this Couchpotato” settings page it says version is undefined and updater is undefined , master. I was thinking that maybe updating from the command line might give it a jump start.
Suprising to me, I got home from work today and opened CP on my browser and was met with a new version. Apparently it decided to update today and now reads with a version number and all looks as I would expect it to.
Still curious about how to update from a command line if I ever had to.
