I was attempting to clone a github repo on a Slicehost account and received the error below. Its possible that github.com recently updated DNS so if this happens to you then you can use the temporary fix I located on github’s twitter account.
Error:fatal: Unable to look up github.com (port 9418) (Name or service not known)
This error was caused by attempting to clone edavis10’s redmine repo using the command below.
- git clone git://github.com/edavis10/redmine.git
