Git Installation

Git on Mac OS X

On Mac OS X, you can get Git using "MacPorts": . After installing MacPorts, do:

<br /> sudo port selfupdate<br /> sudo port sync<br /> sudo port install git-core<br /> add /opt/local/bin to your PATH<br />

Note that this also adds another ssh into your path. You can safely remove <code&gt;/opt/local/bin/ssh*</code&gt; <code&gt;/opt/local/bin/scp /opt/local/bin/sftp&lt;/code&gt; (especially if you want to use Leopard's built-in ssh-agent).

Git on Windows

For Windows there exists a convenient installer as part of the "Git for Windows project&quot;:

NOTE: When the installer presents you with the option of how to put Git into your PATH choose the third option of putting Git and all its tools into your path!

Git on Linux

All major Linux distributions offer up-to-date packages of Git. Use your distribution specific package manager to install Git. Note that on Debian based distributions the Git package is actually called <code&gt;git-core&lt;/code&gt;.

Building Git from Source

Git is easy to build from source. Just download the latest release from ";:, unpack the sources, run <code&gt;configure&lt;/code&gt; followed by <code&gt;make&lt;/code&gt; followed by <code&gt;make install&lt;/code&gt;. This will install it locally into your home directory, the binaries end up in <code&gt;$HOME/bin&lt;/code&gt;.
