Installing latest stable Git on Debian 6.0

I want install on my Debian 6 git. Apt-get install git give me old version. So, step by step to install latest stable git version on Debian:

apt-get install libcurl4-gnutls-dev libexpat1-dev gettext libz-dev libssl-dev
wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-1.8.4.1.tar.gz
tar -zxf git-1.8.4.1.tar.gz
cd git-1.8.4.1
make prefix=/usr/local all
make prefix=/usr/local install

Ups…. result make:

LINK git-credential-store
libgit.a(utf8.o): In function `reencode_string_iconv':
/root/git-1.8.4.1/utf8.c:530: undefined reference to `libiconv'
libgit.a(utf8.o): In function `reencode_string_len':
/root/git-1.8.4.1/utf8.c:569: undefined reference to `libiconv_open'
/root/git-1.8.4.1/utf8.c:588: undefined reference to `libiconv_close'
/root/git-1.8.4.1/utf8.c:582: undefined reference to `libiconv_open'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [git-credential-store] Error 1

So download and compile necessary library libiconv:

wget http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/libiconv/libiconv-1.14.tar.gz
tar -zxvf libiconv-1.14.tar.gz
cd libiconv-1.14
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/libiconv
make
make install

and repeat make, make install from beginning…That’s all!

Have a nice day ๐Ÿ™‚
