Subject description: can't get this working
 

I am trying to get bitmessage working on puppy. I am following the instructions listed at this webpage:

https://bitmessage.org/wiki/Compiling_instructions

in accordance with these instructions I installed from the puppy package manager:

python openssl
python-qt4

I could not find git in the package manager so I did some googling and downloaded from this thread:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=77290&sid=2d43d1dfed70a16884006311719bda3d


The problem when I follow the wiki and run:

git clone https://github.com/Bitmessage/PyBitmessage $HOME/PyBitmessage

I get the following error message:

Cloning into '/root/PyBitmessage'...
error: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details:
error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed while accessing https://github.com/Bitmessage/PyBitmessage/info/refs
fatal: HTTP request failed


What have I done wrong? Any ideas where I go from here?

There's a page about your error on help.github.com. Good idea to include this with each new request.

Yes I know about this. I have even seen text saying

"When you receive this error, it likely means that your CA is out-of-date and needs to be updated. Generally, updating your OS will also update your CA and solve the problem."

This really means nothing to me. I am running the latest precise puppy so don't know what to do? I even contact the git community and they said I am better to speak to someone who knows puppy.

Apologies if this sounds dumb but I have been trying to get this to work for hours without much joy. Any ideas where I can go from here?

it's ok I think I sorted it. Found the answer on here

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3777075/ssl-certificate-rejected-trying-to-access-github-over-https-behind-firewall

It seems you can disable this by using:

git config --global http.sslVerify false

This is dangerous though but it did work
