FreeBSD git fatal: Unable to find remote helper for ‘https’

I just found out that git is not fully functional on my FreeBSD (11) box. It was installed from port (using portmaster git). I can clone a repo using SSH key, but not with HTTPS.

I’m not quite sure if it’s always been this way. Here is how to fix it:

1) Reinstall curl

# pkg remove curl
# portmaster curl

2) Reinstall git

# pkg remove git
# portmaster git

Why did I install git from port? Well, ‘cuz there is no binary package for FreeBSD 11 arm, which runs on my Raspberry Pi B+.

ការបញ្ចូល git ក្នុង Raspberry Pi ដើរ​ FreeBSD 11

ដោយ​សារ​ពុំមាន​ កញ្ចប់បាយនារី (binary package) នៃ​​ git យើង​​ត្រូវ​បញ្ចូល​ git​ពីសោះ​ខូត ដូច​ខាងក្រោម៖

# cd /usr/ports/devel/git
# make install clean

សង្ឃឹម​ថា​ថ្ងៃ​ក្រោយ​ឆាប់ៗ កញ្ចប់​បាយនារី នឹង​បាន​បង្កើត​ឡើង​ ព្រោះខំផាយ​ពី សោះខូត​យើត​ណាស់ ជាពិសេស​ពេល​ខំផាយ​វា​លើ​ រ៉ាស់​ប៊ែរី​ផាយ។

Beautify gitk font on Debian/Ubuntu

Install tk8.5, if not yet installed:

# apt-get install tk8.5
# update-alternatives --config wish

There are 3 alternatives which provide `wish'.

  Selection    Alternative
          1    /usr/bin/wish8.4
*+        2    /usr/bin/wish-default
          3    /usr/bin/wish8.5

Type in the number that corresponds to tk8.5 (in my case was 3) then hit enter.
Change fonts in ~/.gitk to DejaVu Sans Mono.

set mainfont {{DejaVu Sans Mono} 9}
set textfont {{DejaVu Sans Mono} 9}
set uifont {{DejaVu Sans Mono} 9 bold}
