portage # cd /usr/local/portage/layman/perl-experimental
perl-experimental # git checkout -b alternatives alternatives
fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches.
Did you intend to checkout 'alternatives' which can not be resolved as
commit?


I think you mean

git checkout -b alternatives
git pull origin alternatives

?

But now layman -S give me error :(
"
From git://git.overlays.gentoo.org/proj/perl-overlay
   3ddbd1a..43666a7  master     -> origin/master
You asked me to pull without telling me which branch you
want to merge with, and 'branch.alternatives.merge' in
your configuration file does not tell me either.	Please
specify which branch you want to merge on the command line and
try again (e.g. 'git pull <repository> <refspec>').
See git-pull(1) for details.
"

What am I doing wrong?

Anyway, thanks for advice :)

P.S.
5.10.1 out - woohoo :)
