Tutorial – Submit large files in GIT


  1. Install git >= 1.8.2
    • Recommended method for RHEL/CentOS 5 and 7 (not 6!)
      1. Install the epel repo link (For CentOS it’s just sudo yum install epel-release)
      2. sudo yum install git
    • Recommended method for RHEL/CentOS 6
      1. Install the IUS Community repo. curl -s | sudo bash or here
      2. sudo yum install git2u
    • You can also build git from source and install it. If you do that, you will need to either manually download the git-lfs rpm and install it with rpm -i --nodeps git-lfs*.rpm, or just use the Other instructions. The only other advanced way to fool yum is to create and install a fake/real git rpm to satisfy the git >= 1.8.2 requirement.
  2. To install the git-lfs repo, run curl -s | sudo bash from here
  3. sudo yum install git-lfs
  4. git lfs install

Install software on your Macbook MAC

brew install git-lfs
