Installing git on cPanel server gave a strange missing RPMs error though the rpm was existing in the CentOS 6 repo.

Error: Package: git-1.7.1-3.el6_4.1.x86_64 (base)
Requires: perl-Git = 1.7.1-3.el6_4.1
 

cPanel is known to create these issues as it won’t allow many of the RPMs to be installed and it also excludes major software RPM’s in yum configuration files.

To get rid of the error related to git I had to forcefully disable the main excludes as follows:

yum install git –disableexcludes=main

This indeed resolved the problem.
