#9488 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

convert for git versions that don't support the --dirty option

Reported by: yiannividalis@… Owned by: beirdo
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.24.1
Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head

I wrote in the lists about my git version not supporting the 'dirty' option.

I patched so that it returns the 'git describe' without the 'dirty' option instead of just Unknown.

If it is acceptable, I am offering the patch

This is a very poor fix for the problem at hand. You should be using a newer version of git. We don't support anything older than git 1.7.x. I will however put a modified version of this in place.

Allow braindead old git versions to give version

Since some people insist on using old versions of git (earlier than 1.7.x) that don't support git describe --dirty, I'm putting in a fallback.

Thanks to yiannividalis@… for the idea
