Installing Git and EPEL Packages on RHEL 5.*

I was looking to install Git on a Linux server running RHEL 5.*. And using the EPEL repos helped me to locate the required Git rpm along with its dependencies.

I followed the following steps to install Git:

wget http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/epel/epel-release-latest-5.noarch.rpm

rpm -ivh epel-release-latest-5.noarch.rpm

yum install git
