I am trying to install gitolite on an ubuntu 10.10 server. It seems from the google that gitolite should have a package in the repos, but I dont see any install candidates on my box. I can grab the source from github, but not entirely sure how to install that...

any help on how to get gitolite installed?

gitolite is in the repos. Check if you have this line in your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu maverick-security main universe

If you don't have, add it. If you already have but commented, just remove the # character in front of the line.

After that you can update your repos and install gitolite.
