Lode Build Problem

Thank you to you both for looking at this. I had seen the warnings on the lode guide page, but I had perhaps been too optimistic in assuming the there would not be a problem on my system. However, clearly the spaces are a problem and I will now follow the earlier instructions to eliminate these and reattempt the build. Also, I will more closely next time adhere to guidelines and warnings, such as those on the lode guide page.

Best regards

and I'm pretty sure that confused the heck out of git to have spaces there

I can confirm that there are several problems having spaces in the directory, which is why we write
"A couple of warning, based on experience from earlier installations:

  *   Do not use a network drive, it will not work. There can also be problems with some older USB drives
  *   Do not use names longer than 8 char
  *   Only use a-z and 0-9 in the name, NO spaces or other special characters"
