Cloning from an existing git repo


git clone https://github.com/vivekbhadra/kernel_programming.git

In the above example the git repository is located at https://github.com/vivekbhadra/kernel_programming.git which was created in github.com and can be found here.

Pushing changes up in the master


git push

Check git branch


vbhadra@vbhadra-VirtualBox:~/kernel_programming$ git branch -av
* master 5a562f2 Sample hellow world module.
remotes/origin/master 5a562f2 Sample hellow world module.
vbhadra@vbhadra-VirtualBox:~/kernel_programming$

Create a new git branch


git checkout -b 

In the above the name of the new branch can be anything you like. Ideally a name which can briefly describes what the branch is about would be nice.


vbhadra@vbhadra-VirtualBox:~/kernel_programming$ git branch -av
master 5a562f2 Sample hellow world module.
* new_development 5a562f2 Sample hellow world module.
remotes/origin/master 5a562f2 Sample hellow world module.
vbhadra@vbhadra-VirtualBox:~/kernel_programming$

Switching between branches


git checkout 

Example


vbhadra@vbhadra-VirtualBox:~/kernel_programming$ git checkout master
Switched to branch 'master'
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
vbhadra@vbhadra-VirtualBox:~/kernel_programming$ git branch -av
* master 5a562f2 Sample hello world module.
new_development 5a562f2 Sample hello world module.
remotes/origin/master 5a562f2 Sample hello world module.
vbhadra@vbhadra-VirtualBox:~/kernel_programming$ git checkout new_development
Switched to branch 'new_development'
vbhadra@vbhadra-VirtualBox:~/kernel_programming$ git branch -av
master 5a562f2 Sample hellow world module.
* new_development 5a562f2 Sample hellow world module.
remotes/origin/master 5a562f2 Sample hellow world module.
