error installing epel package needed to install GIT in fedora 18

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


Fedora have git in its standard repository. -> True, however when I try to "yum install git", I got a message indicating that the git package is not available. I'm login as root.

Please update your question with the entire output that you received. yum install git works just fine here. Please also post the output of sudo yum repolist.

Wow. What system are you running? You don't even have the Fedora repositories enabled! Why have you disabled the Fedora repositories? Please update the question (not another comment) with the output of: ls /etc/yum.repos.d and uname -a and cat /etc/fedora-release. Please try and update the question with requested information. That way others running into the issue don't need to follow the entire comment thread to understand what's going on.

EPEL is only for RHEL / Centos and other Enterprise Linux clones.

Fedora have git in its standard repository.

P.S. this check is precisely there to forbid such installation which will do nothing valuable.
