Today git 1.6.3 was released. You can install git 1.6.3 for Ubuntu Jaunty with the use of my repository.
I only build the new version for Ubuntu Jaunty and not for Ubuntu Intrepid. The problem with the Launchpad PPA is that it doesn’t provide any statistics about my PPA, and therefor I don’t have a clue if the Intrepid repository is still being used.
On the AVH Forum I created a poll where you can vote if you want/need the latest version of git for Ubuntu Intrepid.
To vote go to my forum
To add my repository to your system:
- Goto System -> Administration -> Software Sources
- Click Third-Party Software
- Click Add
- Fill in the APT line:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pdoes/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
- Click Add Source
- Click Close
- Click Reload
You will also need to add my PPA key:
In a terminal enter the following lines
gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-key 551CE2FB4CBEDD5A gpg --armor --export 551CE2FB4CBEDD5A | sudo apt-key add -
The output you’ll see:
gpg: requesting key 4CBEDD5A from hkp server subkeys.pgp.net gpg: key 4CBEDD5A: public key "Launchpad PPA for Peter van der Does" imported gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1) OK
