Compile git on iPad

Having gcc up and running on an iPad, you should make a symbolic link so that cc points to gcc in /usr/bin (ln /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/cc) .

Download and extract the latest source from gitHub

curl –O -k

tar xvf master

Build by issuing the following command in the extracted source dir (which I renamed to git):


Sign the app:

ldid –S git

And you are ready to use git to clone the webinos repository Smile 

iPad:~/git root# ./git clone git:// ../webinos
