getopt package for GIT?

Post by Johannes33 » Sun Oct 14, 2018 6:13 pm

Hi I would like to install GIT from source.
To do so I would need a package called getopt.
I wonder which package is the getopt git is referring to.
That is what is it called in linux mint?

Other than the standard sudo apt-get install build-essential you do not need anything other than as described at https://git-scm.com/book/en/v1/Getting- ... alling-Git.

[EDIT] Noticed the "v1" in the URL only after posting; advise on that specific subject works fine still, but be sure to browse around the newer v2 rather than v1 book generally: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2
