git client broken for github connections

Post by mathog » 2018/06/21 23:51:55

Hi all,

Apparently github stopped supporting some encryption types in February:

and now "git clone" doesn't work from any of my Centos 6.9 machines. Has anybody run across some RPMs to resolve this?

(I didn't notice until now because usually a zip file is downloaded. Today one zip file was missing pieces visible in the browser view of that package's github directory.)

Thanks,

David Mathog

IUS has git2u packages. SCL has git19 and rh-git29 and sclo-git212 and sclo-git25 sets of packages.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

That helped a lot. Assuming epel-release is already in the repolist then this does the trick:

Code: Select all

sudo yum install https://centos6.iuscommunity.org/ius-release.rpm
sudo yum erase git
sudo yum install git2u
Thanks!
