Merge Conflict Cases in Git
I have just now started using Git and previously used CVS for versioning.
Can someone explain me how to deal with merge conflict cases in Git? Also what is the standard procedure to follow in such cases.
I faced a situation after doing the below steps,
- I had committed some files into my local repository using
git add and
- Later when I tried to push my local repo changes to a remote repo, it fails with a non-fast-forward error and prompts me to pull before pushing.
- So I tried
git pull to fetch the latest from remote repo into my local repo. Pull failed and said there were merge conflicts.
Let's assume I pull from the remote into my local repo and then do step 1 (committing files). What happens if someone else pushed their changes before I push to the remote repo. I believe push ending with merge is a usual case. How to deal with these cases?
I assume pull involves fetch + merge. In my case automatic merge seems to have failed. What do I have to do in the above case? Please also tell me how to avoid getting into such situations?
