I thought Git should be Linux user friendly. However the set up steps seem to be much complicated then usual. Even I want to install Git through Ubuntu Software Center, all I’m getting are some errors on downloading the unauthorized source?!
So since that, I only can build it through the source code.
- Download Git source code from http://kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-22.214.171.124.tar.bz2
- Unzip it
- We need this zliblg to build the source code later
- sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev” in terminal
And done. You can check it by typing $ git –-version.
After that all the source code can be removed.
