Re: HP-UX (git-2.14.0) Depot File / Source Code Build throws SHA1 Error

Hello Jeff,

Your information was very useful.

Firstly, I could see the SHA1 hash was definitely wrong.
-bash-4.3$ echo foo | ./git hash-object --stdin

I attempted to build the code with OPENSSL_SHA1=Yes and the build is
working and I am able to do a git clone from my HP-UX machine. I still
used the adapted source code HPUX connect website.
I am wondering whether the package which was committed to the HPUX
site (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/) did ever worked for any one as it
was the same SHA1 error I was getting when I installed that depot
file. My HPUX architecture is below:

HP-UX hepscott B.11.31 U ia64 2256017764 unlimited-user license

But I can confirm with the adapated source code from HPUX connect and
using the  OPENSSL_SHA1=Yes I am able to build a working git locally.

Thanks a lot.
Kind Regards,
