Hello,

I couldn't find a git package for Maemo so I made one.

Here's the deb: http://nikosapi.org/software/git/git_1.6.2-1_armel.deb
All the source files are here: http://nikosapi.org/software/git

Enjoy,

nick

Thanks man! I was running Git through the Deblet but I really don't use any of the other features of the deblet so I was considering dropping it, but I didn't want to lose Git. So thanks a bundle!

Well, I got it installed but I've run into a bit of a problem. First it was failing because I didn't have an /etc/profile.d folder, so I created that folder and it reinstalled fine. But now when I try to clone from my remote repository it tells me:

git: 'index-pack' is not a git-command

And when I try to do a local clone it tells me:

warning: templates not found /home/nikosapi/git-1.6.2/debian/git/usr/share/git-core/templates

So it looks like somewhere you've got your own home directory hard coded in a configuration file or something, because my home directory is /home/user/...

Any suggestions as to where I can update this value to point to my own home directory?

Thanks
Mark

Hi there!

I would like to upload your git packages to maemo.org - is that okay with you?

I don't think my package meets the Maemo packaging quality guidelines, you should probably work on it a bit to make it compliant before submitting. See this document for more information.

Thanks,

I tried installing git on the N900 and also get the error seen above and the clone command fails:

~/git$ git clone ssh://dov@myserver/home/dov/repos
warning: templates not found /home/builder3/maemo-fremantle-armel-extras-devel/work/git-1.6.5.7/debian/git/usr/share/git-core/templates
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/user/git/repos/.git/
dov@myserver's password:
git: 'index-pack' is not a git-command. See 'git --help'.
fatal: index-pack failed
~/git$ remote: Counting objects: 1283, done.

any ideas?

I found the reason. git does not find its core files in /usr/libexec/git-core by default. Once I added this directory to the path, everything works just fine.

So now I can just use git to synch all my work between my desktop and my phone. Great!

Is there a working package for git now? I've been unable to locate one in any repository. Thanks!

git works fine for me. It's in devel.
apt-get install git-core

works.
