In Modulus release_22.09 I’m trying to pull a git LFS Modulus example file and it fails

examples (release_22.09) $ git lfs pull --include helmholtz/validation/helmholtz.csv

Can someone help with this? Thanks!

Everything runs fine if my examples folder is in $HOME/modulus.

Hi @maric

This looks like an issue related to where (the hardware location) you’re trying to clone the examples repo. I would just clone the examples repo from scratch in a different spot. If this isn’t possible I would suggest you do some digging on why this would show for Git repos in general. Some stack overflow questions may lend some insight.

Yep, I cloned the repo in $HOME/modulus, this works, see my answer from Nov 3 above, thanks for the hints!
