It seems the git man pages (or HTML pages) are not installed by default when you install git as described in the http://git-scm.com/book

I propose to add a note to http://git-scm.com/book/en/Getting-Started-Installing-Git along those lines:

Getting the git manpages from "https://code.google.com/p/git-core/downloads/list"; and unpack them (supposing you installed your git into "/opt/git"):

VERSION=`$TARGET/bin/git --version | awk '{print $3}' | cut -d '.' -f1-3`
wget "http://git-core.googlecode.com/files/git-manpages-${VERSION}.tar.gz";
mkdir "$TARGET/share/man"
tar xz -C "$TARGET/share/man" -f "git-manpages-${VERSION}.tar.gz"

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
