I have recently got a spare laptop and installed Linux (I've been on
Windows since 3.1, and stuff before that) , and I'm trying to get my
head around some of the Git install issues on Linux. In particular how
to compile my own version of Git, separate from the installed version.
I've got Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
ubuntu-12-04 to confirm I had the latest update and dependencies,
and then 'cd repos/git' where I had cloned the git source (my own repo),
rather than getting the tar.
I then compiled with 'make prefix=/usr/local all' and got what I think
was a successful compile.
However 'which -a git' gave only one result, /usr/bin/git.
'git --version' gave 'git version 188.8.131.52' which I believe was the
original ubuntu apt-get version.
Where should the compiled version be?, and will it have overwritten my
previous 'apt-get git', or have I missed out an 'install' step.
