Upgrading git from the source repository in Ubuntu

I want to upgrade git using the source repository in Ubuntu. As you note, the last stable version is the 2.0.2, but I have the 1.9.4.

I cloned the git repo, but I’m not sure how to continue.

  • ExecJS::ProgramError: Unexpected token: name (option)
  • Git push URL encoding issue
  • Unable to determine upstream SVN information from HEAD history
  • Checkout recently created branch
  • Git, deleting repository
  • Git keeps mentioning my old username even if I can't find a trace of it
  • I want to do that in some way I can understand how to interact with the branches and tags of the repo, so I am not searching solutions of this type

    Please help!

  • What VCS allows me to add changes to multiple pending commits simultaneously?
  • Git is doing very slow commits on a Samba share. What can I do to speed it up?
  • Okay to push directly to gh-pages branch without pushing to master branch?
  • Git: Checkout all files except one
  • Restore Merged Branch in Bitbucket Repo
  • What is little red arrow and no sign in github desktop?
  • One Solution collect form web for “Upgrading git from the source repository in Ubuntu”

    2.0.2 has been uploaded 3 days ago in this PPA: https://launchpad.net/~git-core/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/ppa
    

    But if this isn’t what you want, and you have clone the git repo, then

    sudo apt-get install libcurl4-gnutls-dev libexpat1-dev gettext libz-dev libssl-dev bzip2
    cd /path/to/local/clone/of/git
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    
    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
