Gitolite on Ubuntu: No admin key given
This adds the extra steps to bring in a ppa, install a new package, and reconfigure something like Gitolite3.
Replace ppa:snapy/ppa with your launchpad.
Replace gitolite3 with your package.
First, find a package you want. I generally check to see if it's in the next release; easier to upgrade later.
From a terminal window:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:snapy/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-cache gencaches
apt-cache search gitolite3
sudo apt-get install gitolite3
Then, after setup is finished, you can run the command
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gitoliteand it will prompt you to provide:
- The user which gitolite will use
- The directory which that user use to store all its files (gitolite config, gitolite managed repositories, etc)
- (And the most important) the public key of the user whom will be the
first administrator in gitolite, which you may either put the public
key (just a single line starts with
ssh-rsaor path to the file which contains the public key)
