Git on Mac OS X
On Mac OS X, you can get Git using MacPorts. After installing MacPorts, do:
sudo port selfupdate sudo port sync sudo port install git-core add /opt/local/bin to your PATH
Note that this also adds another ssh into your path. You can safely remove /opt/local/bin/ssh* /opt/local/bin/scp /opt/local/bin/sftp (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
NOTE: When the installer presents you with the option of how to put Git into your PATH choose the second option of putting only Git commands 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 git-core.
Building Git from Source
Git is easy to build from source. Just download the latest release from http://git.or.cz/, unpack the sources, run configure followed by make followed by make install. This will install it locally into your home directory, the binaries end up in $HOME/bin.
