I'm trying to install Git on a RHEL6 development server, I have experience with Ubuntu but this is my first time working with RHEL (I'm a developer trying to fill in for a recently departed Linux Sysadmin).
I've set up two additional repos (EPEL and IUS) for other packages needed for a Magento install. Output of yum repolist:
[root@box]# yum repolist Loaded plugins: product-id, security, subscription-manager Updating certificate-based repositories. repo id repo name status epel Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - x86_64 7,841 ius IUS for RHEL 6Server - x86_64 135
Most of what I've read indicates a simple 'yum install git' should work with EPEL enabled, but I get the dreaded
[root@box]# yum install git Loaded plugins: product-id, security, subscription-manager Updating certificate-based repositories. Setting up Install Process No package git available. Error: Nothing to do
Same goes for git-daemon, etc.
I've tracked down a number of git RPMs such as this one at repoforge but they require a train of dependencies that seems to never end.
I've also toyed with compiling it manually but the rabbit hole to get make working seems to go even deeper.
I'm convinced there's a simple oversight somewhere keeping me from being able to install from the EPEL repo, but I'm a rookie at all this. Thanks in advance for help/pointers/additional resources.
