Git on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 4 i386 October 15, 2010

I have been struggling with this for a while now. There is no yum to begin with and up2date doesn’t help much either (no git-* packages). Here is a quick solution:

$ cd ~
$ wget http://packages.sw.be/git/git-1.7.3-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm
$ wget http://packages.sw.be/git/perl-Git-1.7.3-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm
$ rpm -ivh --nodeps git-1.7.3-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm perl-Git-1.7.3-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm
$ git --version

You can browse packages.sw.be/git/ for the latest packages and update the above accordingly.
