How to install git using yum


Hello, I'm trying to install git on my system (CentOS 5) and i've tried a variety of different things. I tried

yum install git

but that doesn't do anything, it just returns the following message:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* addons: linux.mirrors.es.net
* base: mirrors.xmission.com
* extras: mirrors.cat.pdx.edu
* updates: mirrors.versaweb.com
Setting up Install Process
No package git available.
Nothing to do


I tried downloading an RPM (git-all-1.7.3.2-1.fc11.i386.rpm) online at http://rpm.pbone.net but when I try to install from this RPM i get a list of unresolved dependencies.

yum localinstall git-all-1.7.3.2-1.fc11.i386.rpm

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest


I thought Yum was supposed to automatically resolve those issues? Do i need to set up another repository to make this work?? Thanks for any assistance, I'm pretty new with Yum so if anything i mentioned above doesn't make sense just let me know and i'll try to clarify. Thanks!

The package git is in the EPEL repo https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
( EPEL : 5000 packages.)

After installing the 'epel.repo', you can do # yum install git


Random Fedora packages cannot be used in CentOS.

@Drakeo

No default git. The "Base.repo" for CentOS5 / (RHEL5) / SL5 :
Only 2535 packages .

It is a server OS : Limited selections.

installing rep

knudfl, Thanks for the reply. Sorry but I'm pretty new to yum, would you be able to how I'd install the 'epel.repo'? Also, how would i even know to look there in the first place?

Thanks,

install the appropriate epel-release package on this page and it'll take care of it all http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL

Why would you know? Well here you are now, finding out...
