This line in git-1.8.2:
git config --system http.sslCAPath /etc/ssl/certs
tries to write to /usr/etc/gitconfig which, of course, doesn't exist, or should I say,
there is nothing that has created /usr/etc on my system.
There are a number of ways around this.
1) install /usr/etc/gitconfig before running the git config command
2) Don't use --system and create a .git/config file.
3) Use --global and git config will write to ~/.gitconfig
What I decided to do was the following:
git config --file /etc/gitconfig http.sslCAPath /etc/ssl/certs
cat > /etc/profile.d/git.sh << "EOF"
to set up the GIT_CONFIG env variable.
I'm sure there are more options but I didn't investigate any further.
