A 8 minute screencast
introducing the git-annex assistant.
I am starting to understand the concept Thank you.
The assistant is working perfect with local repos and removable drives but i have problems to setup a remote repos. On a fresh debian server with base setup and rsync installed and ssh-keys for login. I got a green "Scanned 93.xxx.xx.xxx_annex" message on dashboard, but there is never a finished transfer. Its "queued" on all files and nothing seems to happens on clicking the "play" button behind files (x-ing files removes them from dashboard). Also i saw there is a second option in your screencast for remote servers ("Use a git reposoitory on the server") which does not show up on my side. Do i need to setup git-annex on server for second option? (with git-annex version 4.20130314).
@modules: Yes, you're only given the option to use a git repository on the server if it has both git and git-annex installed. You can install any version of git-annex there. For example, Debian stable ships with one that will work.
I plan to make that screen clearer when the git repository option is not available.
I'm not sure what'd going on with your rsync transfers not running. I can say that if the "play" icon is visible, the transfer has been paused. While a transfer is running, the "pause" icon is visible instead, to let you pause it.
This may be as simple as you having misunderstood the icons and paused the currently running transfer, which prevents any transfers from running. If not, suggest you enable debug logs in the Preferences page, and consider filing a bug report.
