How can I get the git-all meta package on RHEL 6.2

User7391 asked:

I believe I’m missing some of the common git addons, such as gitk, and I suspect it is because I installed git using

sudo yum install git

as the information for that package lists:

        : The git rpm installs the core tools with minimal dependencies.  To
        : install all git packages, including tools for integrating with
        : other SCMs, install the git-all meta-package.

Ok, fine. I’d like to install the git-all meta-package. However my naive attempt to do so, with sudo yum install git-all tells me there is no package git-all.

Here is my yum repolist:

repo id              repo name                                            status
epel                 Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - x86_64       8,226
rhel-x86_64-server-6 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6 for 64-bit x86 8,800

What could I be missing?

My answer:


You need to activate a subscription entitlement for the machine before you will be able to install software from Red Hat Enterprise Linux repositories. If you believe the subscription for the machine is active, contact Red Hat for support.
