Version information for Hg/Git not showing in Admin >> Settings >> System Info

Good afternoon,

Immediately upon installation, I noticed that the 'HG version' field of the System Info page was not showing anything.

Originally, 'Git version' was showing version 2.7.4 but at some point after upgrading to 4.4.0, even this information disappeared. In fact, we lost the ability to create Git repositories until I manually installed Git with 'yum' and now it's showing version 1.9.1 which wicked old.

Do you know what could cause the version of these two tools to not show?

If I look under ~/.rccontrol/vcsserver-1/profile/bin, I do see hg and git and if I run them from there, I get versions 3.8.4 and 2.7.4 respectively... which is what I would've expected to see in the web UI.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Yohan,

    This is something fixed in release 4.4.2, once you upgrade the linking of binaries from profile/bin should be corrected. RhodeCode then no longer would require GIT binary being present from the system.

    Sorry for troubles.

    Hello Marcin,

    We have just completed the upgrade to 4.4.2 and while the Git version is now showing again, the Mercurial one still is not visible.

    Hi Yohan,

    The version is not shown but Mercurial is fully working right ?

    That is correct... everything is working as far as I can tell.
