Hi,

I am pretty new to drupal and git.. I am going thru the Git videos and in my install it appears I did not get the man pages installed.. so I can not run any "help" commands.

I installed the latest from: https://code.google.com/p/git-osx-installer/downloads/list

Chris S. suggested: http://www.jukie.net/bart/blog/git-man-install

which provides:

# in a clone of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git

git archive --format=tar origin/man | sudo tar -x -C /usr/share/man/ -vf -

I havent progress far enough thru the vids to working with remote repositories and cloning, nor am i 100% sure on the directory structures etc. to feel comfortable doing this on the command line on the mac..

I'll get there I am sure, but I am wondering if anyone else has started the git vids recently and if they also did not get the help (man) pages installed by default

TIA.

Aswell
