you need to create a public key

Code:
ssh-keygen
should do it

I also notice you are root...
it is best you use a 'standard' account

try the git clone with your normal user account, then gen the key if needed and try again

Code:
ls -la ~/.ssh
you should see something like this
Code:
drwx------ 1 firerat firerat   84 Aug 15 07:22 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 firerat firerat  464 Aug 18 14:03 ..
-rw------- 1 firerat firerat 1751 Aug 14 02:11 id_rsa
-rw-r--r-- 1 firerat firerat  404 Aug 14 02:11 id_rsa.pub
-rw------- 1 firerat firerat 2592 Aug 17 19:47 known_hosts

when you run git clone it creates a new dir..
cd into that dir, make changes then do your commit

the -m is handy for short commit messages, leave it off and you get a 'full' editor ( using $EDITOR )
-a commits ALL changes ( and only changes, new files will still not be 'seen' )

use
Code:
git add file1 file2 path/to/file3 dir1 path/to/dir2
git commit
