I'm having trouble installing Git on CentOS 5.5 x86_64. I'm not an expert at this type of thing, what's the problem?
root@server [/]# yum install git

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.

Try running `yum clean all` first then repeat your install. The version of git from EPEL that you are picking up does not appear to be the latest available from EPEL so I suspect that your system has cached out of date metadata. Here I see

Code: Select all

# yum list git perl-Git
git.x86_64                                              1.8.2.1-1.el5                                              installed
perl-Git.x86_64                                           1.8.2.1-1.el5                                            installed
