Did you install the Git man pages, as well as git itself?  Here is  
what works for me on a MacBook:

   % cd
   % curl -O http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-
   % tar xzvf git-
   % cd git-
   % make configure
   % configure --prefix=/usr/local
   % make
   % sudo make install

   % curl -O 
   % sudo tar xv -C /usr/local/man -f git-manpages-
   % export MANPATH="/usr/local/man:$MANPATH"

Note that the "export MANPATH" should go into  
your .profile .bash_profile or whatever you have, in order to make it

Hi, I'm a new for Git.

Could you tell me how I can fix it.
