Installing Git on Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat)

View more posts

Checking out my logs, the most popular posts always seem to be those that outline how to install a package, extension or whatever. Installing git on ubuntu is really straight forward, but thought I'd post it anyway.

SSH into your box, and run the following:

sudo apt-get install -y git

sudo is used to mark that you have super-user permissions; apt-get is the program that downloads binaries/programs; install command does what you think it would; the -y flag tells the installer that you're answering yes to the confirmation prompt about how much disk space it will require, and git is the name of the program you're installing.
