Git rebase a branch onto master failed, how to resolve?
I've been working on a local copy of a remote git repo. I created a branch on my local copy, let's call it 'my_branch'. I've committed a few times on my_branch.
I recently pushed 'my_branch' to remote. However I didn't know that someone else added a version to the remote master. So, I fetched it to my local master.
So...long story short, my local repo looks like this (I'm trying to use the diagraming convention here) .
--C0--------------C7-- (local master)
--C1-C2-C3-- (local my_branch)
--C4-C5-C6-- (local sandbox_branch)
I want it to look like:
--C0--------------C7-- (local master)
--C1'-C2'-C3'-- (local my_branch)
--C4'-C5'-C6'-- (local sandbox_branch)
I tried to rebase my_branch ONTO local master but I got this error message (I'm using a visual tool for git called GitX):
There was an error rebasing HEAD with branch 'master'.
command: git rebase refs/heads/master
It seems that I cannot create a rebase-apply directory, and
I wonder if you are in the middle of patch application or another
rebase. If that is not the case, please
rm -fr /my_project_directory/.git/rebase-apply
and run me again. I am stopping in case you still have something
What am I doing wrong? How should I handle this? If I were to do this on the command line what is the command to get me to the state in the diagram above?
BTW, I'm not in the middle of an application patch or another rebase...at least not intentional. After I found out that remote was updated AFTER I pushed, I did a fetch. Could that have done anything to make GitX think that I'm in the middle of an application patch or another rebase?
I've also updated the diagram to be more accurate. There is a branch off of my_branch. I didn't include it in the original question b/c I didn't think that it would matter. I'm including just in case...
FYI...The master tree for 'local' and for 'remote' looks like the diagram that I drew, except it doesn't have the sandbox_branch.
