Not sure if this is a bug or not, but I am having problems getting started with the GIT module for Virtualmin-
It seems that there are lines in the CGI wrapper mechanism that are calling something along the lines of: "$gitbin/git-cat-file (for example), or git-rev-parse;
anyways, i have both git, and gitweb installed from the official repository (ubuntu 12.04), and have also tried a basic make / install of the latest version from source, and
whereis git-rev-parse (for example)
only returns a reference to a man page. upon further investigation, i found that the same command was available from the git binary, supplied the flag like so: "git rev-parse"
i noticed that the only time i could find any executable by the actual name "git-rev-parse" (again, for example, -) was in reference to binaries in the windows build of GIT:
the topic in which i noticed this was https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/msysgit/VrQLAgQwJHM
i also did find these commands compiled to binary in the folder which git was compiled to, but it did not actually install these binaries, and the command was only available from the command line as "git rev-parse", and not "git-rev-parse"
is this likely a problem with my configuration, OS, or Platform, or am i simply just missing something here..?
hope to get some insight, and if the binary naming convention has changed, i will attempt to make a modification of the template in which the cgi wrapper is built from, and will report my success...
thanks very much guys! hope this wasn't too much info!
