I decided to update my Git-SCM Version on my Macbook. Therfore I tried it by compiling and installing from source. It was a little bit tricky. I give a short description how I did it.
I had to install following packages:
I used port to install them:
sudo port install docbook2x xmlto asciidoc
I catched the newest Version from GitHub.
git clone https://github.com/git/git.git
To install I did the same things which are discribed at the INSTALL-section of
the git source repository. One thing I changed is the prefix part. I use
as a normal user:
make prefix=/opt/local all doc info
after that as root:
make prefix=/opt/local install install-doc install-html install-info
