In this tutorial I will describe how to setup gitorious on Ubuntu 11.10. Gitorious – a Ruby on Rails web application – can be used to conclude git projects in an easy to manage user interface. In the README of the gitorious repository I found the evidence “One of the main challenges in Gitorious is its installation process. It is anything but trivial.” – It appears correct During the installation I got some errors by the sphinx search engine and some ruby gems. You will find the workarounds in this tutorial.
