Hi Sebastian -

It's weird that this git checkout fails - are you able to run this 
command in a console?

  git clone git://github.com/pieper/SlicerVTK.git

The project site for SlicerVTK is here:


Basically it holds some patches relative to the vtk 5.6 branch (for 
widgets, volume rendering...) that ultimately belong in vtk proper but 
aren't ready yet for one reason or another.  Note that the repository 
location and contents are subject to change as we get our git workflows 
sorted out...

Thanks for trying out the superbuild,
