I just updated to the master HEAD, still no luck. Before and after

have never seen the part within the parentheses before.

The part within parenthesis is pulled directly from the git repository
with the command

   git describe --abbrev=4 HEAD

Do you have git installed on your system?  If you do (which I'd think
you'd have to in order to have made it this far) then I'm not sure why
your org-version command doesn't include a part in parenthesis.  If you
really wanted to dig into this you could;
1) call describe-function on the `org-version' function
2) evaluate org-version with edebug by pressing C-u C-M-x
3) call the function with M-x org-version
4) and then step through the function by repeatedly pressing space-bar
    to see why it is failing to call git

Yes I have git on my system, I use it fairly regularly for my research projects. I see that `org-version' looks for git repository in the toplevel install directory (/opt/emacs-lisp/share/emacs/site-lisp/org) and it doesn't find it. Which is expected because my install directory and my build directory (i.e. the git repository) are different. How do I make it look at the build directory (~/build/org-mode) instead?

It might be worthwhile removing the old install under

FWIW, I have this same issue on a similar Ubuntu 10.04 installation of
Emacs 24 and org-mode HEAD.

Hmm, I'm still leaning towards thinking that this could be an
installation issue.  I'd try cleaning up old versions of org-mode and
your load-path until you manage to get something like the following out
of the org-version command

   Org-mode version 7.01trans (release_7.01h.718.g0cb3c5)

My guess is that once you get there the problem will be fixed.

I removed my entire Emacs 24 install, reinstalled it in /opt/emacs-lisp/share/emacs. Then installed org-mode in /opt/emacs-lisp/share/emacs/site-lisp/org. Then I put a site-start file called org-mode.el in /opt/emacs-lisp/share/emacs/site-lisp with the following contents:

(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "org"))

(require 'org-install)
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org\\'" . org-mode))

On restarting Emacs and calling org-version, I get "Org-mode version 7.01trans". There shouldn't be any mixed files after all this. The problem still persists. Does that mean I am doing the installation wrong?

also, if nothing else works, another unrelated thing to try is setting
org-confirm-babel-evaluate to nil (just temporarily)

   (setq org-confirm-babel-evaluate nil)

That doesn't help. Which is probably good. :)
