Re: Is support for 10.8 dropped?




Eric,
Sorry for multiple e-mails. I'm just trying to go thru with this.

This is what I tried:

[code]
MyMac:git-2.17.0 igorkorot$ make configure
GIT_VERSION = 2.17.0
    GEN configure
/bin/sh: autoconf: command not found
make: *** [configure] Error 127
MyMac:git-2.17.0 igorkorot$
[/code]

Does this mean that something is a miss?

Thank you.
