Manual install of newest Git on older Linux distrosBy neokrates, written on July 13, 2010
Newer Git is not a part of older distros. It is the case with Ubuntu and Debian (etch, lenny). Fortunately, manual Git installation seems simple.
I had no extra packages to install, no weird dependencies. Hope you will have the same luck. Here is what you do.
✔ Ubuntu 9.10
✔ Debian Lenny and Etch
✔ Git 1.7.1
Should also wok for
✔ many other Linux distros
✔ Other Git versions
Download and install
⭐ Check your Linux system type. Amd or intel, 32 / 64 bit etc. Depending on type, choose your architecture in the Download git section
⭐ You have your .deb package. Install it with
Example for i386 Linux type and Git 1.7.1:
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/git/git_1.7.1-1_i386.deb dpkg -i git_1.7.1-1_i386.deb
Current version is here http://packages.debian.org/sid/git.
Example for Git 1.7.1:
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/git/git-core_1.7.1-1_all.deb dpkg -i git-core_1.7.1-1_all.deb
Following should work now:
# git --version git version 1.7.1
That’s it, have fun! ;)
