Hackathon/Laptop setup/Linux git-review
Install the Python packaging system
In order to install gerrit-review, you must set up distribute, the Python software packaging system.
On Ubuntu and Debian, you can do that with this command:
sudo apt-get install python-pip
You will see a lot of happy messages print out, and finally you will see a prompt again (which looks like $ sign).
To download git-review, run these command:
sudo pip install git-review
Again, you will see a lot of happy messages print out.
Make sure git-review runs
After all this work, you will want to make sure the program is properly installed. Type this into the prompt:
You should see a happy error message, three lines long:
No .gitreview file found in this repository.
We don't know where your gerrit is. Please manually create
a remote named gerrit and try again.
Hooray! It is properly installed.
