Getting the above error message trying to deploy to Heroku (Windows, PuTTY keygen). Turns out the public/private key files saved through putty aren’t of a valid OpenSSH format (expected by Heroku). You can still use Putty Keygen by copying the text generated under “Public key for pasting into OpenSSH authorized_key file” (save it to your *.pub) I’m inching towards my first Mac. Windows is a frustration after the other. UPDATE: working with Heroku/Git/SSH on a windows machine is a royal pain. One step closer to a MaxBook. Follow these if you’re stuck: – http://therubyway.wordpress.com/2008/12/11/using-heroku-and-windows/ – http://linux-sxs.org/networking/openssh.putty.html – http://help.github.com/troubleshooting-ssh/ – http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/issues/detail?id=49 My setup so far is “Putty Keygen, Putty, Pageant, Git GUI”
Mac hardware is overpriced Tamer – just find a good Linux distro.
Perhaps it’s overpriced for a reason. Being frustration-less (or at least less-annoying).
I’ve tried Linux (Ubuntu, RedHat). There’s something not quite there. Perhaps overall experience (Browsing / Flash; Thunderbird; OpenOffice; NetBeans; …).
I’m so ready for a Mac (sans the money part).
Try using http://hg-git.github.com/ . Mercurial works much better under windows.
