Mercurial Bundle Compression Error on Debian

Posted:2008-08-26 15:21

If you get this error when pushing to a repository:

hg push
pushing to https://mercuriate.3aims.com/project/...
http authorization required
realm: Dev Repo
user: xxx
password:
searching for changes
unknown bundle compression type

It is because you need to upgrade to mercurial 1.0 in backports:

$ wget http://www.backports.org/debian/pool/main/m/mercurial/mercurial-common_1.0.1-2~bpo40+1_all.deb
$ wget http://www.backports.org/debian/pool/main/m/mercurial/mercurial_1.0.1-2~bpo40+1_amd64.deb
$ dpkg -i mercurial-common_1.0.1-2~bpo40+1_all.deb mercurial_1.0.1-2~bpo40+1_amd64.deb
