How to install git on Ubuntu

Recommended Ubuntu book

As I finished installing svn server, I was given and advice to use git instead. So I started to look into it and decided to give it a try. This post is a start of a process.

You need git first. So, lets start installing it. Open the terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install git-core

git --version

In case you need a server, move on to the next point – installing gitosis on Ubuntu.
