1. Install git
As of January 2009, the latest git release is 1.6.1. As there are many improvements compared with older releases (notably, a single executable), it is advisable to use this version instead of the ones provided in the Ubuntu release repositories. There is a personal package archive that provides git 1.6.1 backports to all Ubuntu releases since Hardy.
- add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list (substituting UBUNTU_RELEASE_NAME with the Ubuntu release you are using):
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/smartlounge/ubuntu UBUNTU_RELEASE_NAME main
- install git:
$ apt-get update $ apt-get install git
- verify that the correct version was installed:
$ git --version git version 1.6.1
