I installed git via
apt-get, but found that the version was hopelessly outdated, so I then installed git from source. The end result is rather puzzling:
$ git --version git version 18.104.22.168 $ which git /usr/local/bin/git $ /usr/local/bin/git --version git version 1.7.6
It appears that
which is lying to me...which seems unlikely. What is actually going on here, and how can I get a bare call to git to run the correct version?
