I've never had a problem installing git on any Linux distro, but now I'm forced to use a client's server which is SLES 11 SP2. It uses yast or zypper to do package management, which I've never used before. Apparently I should be able to zypper install git-core but that doesn't work because it needs a certain repo added. Of course none of this is on the official git installation page here.

I found what packages belong to the SLE11-SP2-SDK repo here. But no instructions on how to add the repo to yast or zypper.

I'll also accept an answer that simply tells me how to install git on a SLES server. I've already tried from source, but of course it's missing requirements which also belong to the SDK repo.

This is what I get when I do "zypper install git-core":

$ sudo zypper install git-core

Refreshing service 'nu_novell_com'.
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'git-core' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
No provider of 'git-core' found.
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.

I figured it out, only by piecing together other info mainly from the OpenSUSE project. Basically it's:

$ sudo zypper addrepo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/tools:/scm/SLE_11_SP2/devel:tools:scm.repo
$ sudo zypper install git-core

Comments
  • Maybe I am missing something, but shouldn't yast or zypper handle the dependencies for you?
  • You would hope, but no. This is what I get when I do "zypper install git-core" (see edit above)
  • I just installed SuSE 12.3 and Git was installed by default.
  • Pleased you sorted it out :)
  • This helped me out, started in the right direction. I had to add the perl repo also, b/c git depends on perl-Error. # add devel perl repo $ sudo zypper addrepo download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/perl/…
  • For the perl one the above link didn't work for me. I used: sudo zypper addrepo download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/perl/…
  • @Brade it would be nice if you update your answer with link from rooby - yours does not exist
  • How would I do this on a server? Even if it has an optical drive, I cannot easily access the physical server.
  • Use the add-on option in yast with the iso, no need to deal with physical media
