Re: Ubuntu 10.04 - how to upgrade Git version
No questions are stupid,
here is what I think that you have to do, You said that you are on 10.04 so there is a ppa that you can use but it is only up to 1:1.7.10-0
to add this ppa to your system
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voronov84/andreyv
then if you already have git installed just upgrade it.
sudo apt-get update
If it is not installed
sudo apt-get upgrade
that should get you up to
sudo apt-get install git
you could always search launchpad for a newer ppa
"ubuntu launchpad git 1:1.7.12"
