If you are like me and want to install git-core core from source instead of one to the many binary packages out or you just have a distro that does have a binary for it. Here is what you will need to get it installed.
- POSIX-compliant shell
- GCC – gnu c compiler
- GNU Interactive Tools
- Perl 5.8 or Later
Once all you have verified or install on the required packages. You can download the source from Git Homepage.
shell$ wget http://git-core.googlecode.com/files/git-1.x.x.tar.gz
shell$ tar -zxf git-1.x.x.tar.gz
shell$ cd git-1.x.x
shell$ ./configure –prefix=[install_path]
shell$ make all
shell$ sudo make install
A little old school and not the hard.
